More blood donors needed

Have your say

NHS Blood and Transplant service is looking for more Doncaster people to give blood over the coming weeks to make sure stocks stay healthy as winter approaches.

With donors more likely to stay at home during the winter, and many people unable to donate due to seasonal coughs and colds, it’s vital that those who can give blood at the moment do so.

The whole process takes around an hour - with the actual donation taking less than 10 minutes - and could save the lives of up to three people.

There are sessions in Doncaster today at the Carr House Centre, Danum Road, from 1pm until 3.30pm and 4.30pm until 7.15pm. To book an appointment call 0300 123 2323 or visit
