O positive is the most common blood type
Find out your likely blood type in 5 minutes
Most people find out their blood type when they first give blood.
But did you know you can discover your likely blood type before you become a donor?
If you've ever been curious about your blood type and what it means, come along to one of our What’s Your Blood Type events to register as a new donor and have a free blood type test.
The map shows when we’re in your area or there's information about venues, dates and times below.
Once you've found an event near you, that's it. There’s no need to book, just turn up on the day.
Before the test, we’ll take your details and register you as blood donor.
The test itself takes about 5 minutes and all we need is few drops of blood from your finger. There are no big needles, we promise.
After the test, you'll learn about the lifesaving power of blood and the amazing difference our blood donors make.
Your blood type will be confirmed when you donate blood in the future.

Each blood type is important and we need donors of all types to ensure there's the right blood for the patients who need it.
