How to host a Blood Donation Clinic
If there is a need in your area for a Blood Donation venue, the relevant Blood Transfusion Service will advise if your Club can assist. Read the steps below and contact them immediately to discuss how you can help.
- Step 1: Nominate someone from within your Club to be the co-ordinator of this programme. If your Club has a Health & Wellbeing Officer they may be involved in this, and the support of the Club Executive is important.
- Step 2: Contact the relevant authority to express your interest in hosting a session. They will advise if there is a need in your area and provide you with the necessary advice, support and materials to set up a blood donation clinic if appropriate. They will also assist you to support recruitment of blood donors in your area.
