Giving blood

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
We got a talk off someone from the NHS today trying to encourage us to give blood.

The bus thing is coming on Thursday, and I need an answer by then.

I was at various parties over the weekend, which involved the consumption of alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, and Ecstacy.

I know the alcohol wont matter, but what I want to know is this: will I still be able to donate blood, and if so, will I have to let them know?

Cheers in advance.

    You could always go into the donor centre in town though at another time if you really want to do it
