Register your Interest - Irish Blood Transfusion Service

Register your Interest

Thank you for your interest in becoming a donor. 

If you are interested in becoming a donor please complete the form below
so that we can contact you via phone or email later in the year to inform you about upcoming clinics in your area in advance.

Please note during Covid-19, we are not accepting donations from new donors nor donors who haven't given blood in the last 5 years, as these require an extended screening interview with a nurse on clinic that may exceed 15 minutes, contrary to current social distancing guidelines.

However because you will have registered your interest, we will be able to contact you later in the year when we need you, particularly when demand from the hospitals increases again.  

Some key facts about blood;

  • Blood has a shelf life of 35 days.
  • 70,000 patients need a blood transfusion each year.
  • 1 in 4 of us will need a blood transfusion in our lifetime.
