Blood services

Donors and patients are at the heart of our world-class blood service

We provide a safe, accessible and effective blood service for:

  • donors - easier booking systems and thousands of places to donate
  • patients - safe and consistent supply of blood
  • the NHS - lower costs to hospitals through improved integration and planning of end-to-end supply chain

One donation can save up to three lives

Now is a great time to donate

Improved donor processes means less bruising.

Refurbished, more welcoming fixed donor centres.

Taking blood to 2020

Our strategy: Blood 2020 looks at how we can continue to evolve. It will help us fulfil our ambition to become the best organisation of our type in the world.

Need blood abroad?

We do not supply blood for overseas nationals or UK nationals abroad. But the Blood Care Foundation can in an emergency, on a case- by-case basis.
