In general, as long as you are fit and healthy, weigh over 7 stone 12 lbs (50kg) and are aged between 17 and 66 (up to 70 if you have given blood before) you should be able to give blood. If you are over 70, you need to have given blood in the last two years to continue donating.
While all blood groups are important, some blood groups, such as O Rh negative the universal blood group and B Rh negative are Nike Running Shoes Men Black
more vulnerable to shortfalls than others. It's even more important that the number of regular donors with these blood groups increases. Many people don't know what blood group they are until they make their first donation.
While overall blood use within the NHS has been reducing due to improvements in clinical practice and NHS Blood and Transplant's work with hospitals, the need for blood donations continues. In fact, more than 7,000 people need to attend a blood donation session every day to ensure the right amount of blood is collected, in the right quantities at the right time to meet patient needs. NHS Blood and Transplant carefully plans when and where sessions take place in line with the amount of blood hospitals need to ensure precious blood donations are not wasted.
NHS Blood and Transplant has released the figures at the start of National Blood Week to encourage more people across Devon to 'get off the bench' and start giving blood. The need for people to join the Greatest Team in the World is also intensified as donations are expected to be disrupted this summer as people's attention turns to the Football World Cup.

Across England and North Wales, 17 24 year olds currently account for 14% of donors. Young donors are crucial to ensuring there is a robust donor base for the years to come and to protect the future supply of blood.
"We want potential donors to know they can do something amazing for their country just as the England team will hopefully do in Brazil! Make a date to donate and please keep your appointment to help us maintain and ensure stock levels for the coming months and for the future."
Each year 200,000 new donors are required to attend a donation session to replace those who can no longer donate for health or other reasons.
Jon Latham, Assistant Director for Donor Services and Marketing at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "Our blood donors make up The Greatest Team in the World and we're grateful to each and every one of them including new donors registering this year.

Potential and existing donors in Devon are also being encouraged to find out what being a platelet donor involves. The blood Nike Trainers Black And Red
component, platelets, are collected in just 24 centres in the country and one of those centres is in Derriford Hospital, Plymouth.

A Rh negative and AB Rh negative platelet donors are particularly needed.

Young donors are crucial to ensuring there will be enough donors in the years to come. Despite the percentage of 17 24 year old blood donors in Devon being higher than the national average, more younger donors are needed.
"We're issuing a 'call up' for more to come forward because we know blood donation falls off the to do list during hot weather and summer holidays, and big public events like the World Cup.
