Our 50,000 friends

Thanks to social media, it's never been easier for us to stay in touch with you

We wanted to say a big thanks to all our friends on social media. We've just reached the landmark figure of 50,000 supporters on our facebook page, which was launched in May for National Blood Week, and support is still growing. We'll continue to keep you updated on the world of blood donation with regular posts and interesting stories.

Support on our organ donation facebook page has also been steadily rising, with many of you following the events of our Black and Asian campaign as they happen. If you haven't joined our page already, come and see the latest pictures from our events and find out which celebrities are supporting us.

Making things easier

We recently updated the homepage on our NHSBT site at www.nhsbt.nhs.uk with a fresh, new modern design that is easier to navigate so you can find the information you need quickly.

Check out the news section, dedicated sections about blood and organ donation, details of our performance and the online subscription service to our e-communications.

We are also working on updating a number of other websites at the moment and we recently launched a new annual review at www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/annualreview and strategic plan site at www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/strategicplan.
