Blood donation
Blood donation

The Welsh Blood Service organises the collection, testing, processing and distribution of blood. They rely entirely on voluntary donors to maintain supplies to Welsh hospitals.

Anyone aged between 17 and 66, who weighs over 7st 12lbs (50kg), who is healthy and not subject to certain medical exclusions can volunteer to become a blood donor.

Visit the Welsh Blood Service website for more information.
