make sure you can give
There are many reasons why, at times, you may not be able to give blood. To help save donors from wasted time and wasted journeys, this page shows the top reasons why you may be unable to donate blood for a period of time.
If any of these reasons apply to you or you have any other health conditions, have travelled out of the country recently, or you answer 'yes' to any question on your Donor Health Check questionnaire - please call 0300 123 23 23 or check the health and travel section for further advice about whether this affects you donating blood.
Don’t waste your time. Find answers to more questions, including special circumstances in which you may not be able to give blood in our FAQs. If you are not sure or have any questions, just call 0300 123 23 23 and we'll be able to help.
