Blood group AB positive blood is very rare – less than 3% of the donor population possess this particular group.
Many people require blood, whether it's used for planned operations, in an emergency or for people suffering from conditions which require regular blood transfusions such as thalassaemia, leukaemia and those undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. If they have a rare blood group, we do sometimes struggle to get a perfect match for them.
Female donors can give blood three times a year and male donors can give blood four times a year. So please be sure to keep up your outstanding work and donate regularly if you possibly can.
