Because your blood group is O Rh positive, you are especially important.
Around 38% of the donor population share your group, but what makes you even more important is that, if necessary, your blood can be given to anyone who is Rh positive (regardless of their blood group) – and that's a staggering 83% of people.
So your blood could help eight out of every ten hospital patients, whether they're mothers and new-born babies, people being treated for cancer, or having planned operations like a hip replacement.
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.
