Donating blood is simple
To see what occurs lets take a look through our virtual tour. When you go to the center to give blood, you'll be asked to read a number of leaflets and may often fill in a Donor Health Check (DHC) questionnaire and may have a confidential discussion with a nurse or with a doctor. All answers are treated in the strictest confidence. A tiny drop of blood is taken from your fingertip. This allows blood taker center to check your haemoglobin levels to ensure that giving blood won't make you anaemic. Now blood taker center also take two other taste.They are Malaria, HIV. This test is taken for blood receiver safety. If all is well, you will be able to donate blood. You will donate about 470ml of blood - this amount of blood is quickly replaced by your body. Once you have given blood, you should have a short rest before being given some refreshments usually a drink, fruits or biscuits. All in all giving blood shouldn't take more than an hour. Please remember to have something to eat and drink before you give blood. If you are first time in donating please don't be fear. But try to remember that you will not do any hard work after giving blood.
