Bleed to feel amazing

Save a life in an hour

Take the first step to become a lifesaver

It takes just four steps to join the 830,000 people who gave blood in England last year.

  1. Register - you can do this online or over the phone. We will ask you some simple questions and create you a donor account where you can manage your appointments
  2. Book an appointment – you might not be able to book to donate immediately but please make an appointment now for later in the year
  3. Give blood – it usually takes between five and ten minutes with the whole process lasting about an hour
  4. Feel proud – your donation can save up to three lives
