You can give blood if you:

  • are fit, healthy and not suffering from a cold, flu or other illness at the time of donation or in the previous 7 days
  • are aged between 18-65 years
  • weigh more than 50kg

Preparing yourself to give blood:

  • On the day of donation and the evening before, ensure you drink plenty of fluids. However, it is essential to avoid alcohol as this will considerably affect hydration and delay recovery.
  • Eat something in the 3 hours before donating. Normal regular meals prior to donating are necessary for maintaining blood sugars and ward off lightheadedness.
  • A good night's sleep the evening before is beneficial to well-being and recovery.
  • Eligibility criteria to donate may vary so know your medical, body piercing and travel history to avoid any unnecessary delays.
  • Please bring at least one form of photo identification (passport/ ID card/driving licence).
