National Blood Donor Week

Monday 10 June marks the beginning of National Blood Donor Week.

National Blood Donor Week is a week where awareness is raised of the lifesaving importance of blood donation to encourage those who have never donated to give it a go.

These donations play a vital role in saving lives each day by supporting a range of treatments, from helping recovering accident victims and patients with blood cancers to supporting mothers and new-born babies during childbirth. The Welsh Blood Service supports 19 hospitals across the country and relies on donations from blood, platelet and bone marrow donors to support patients in need.
