I really want to donate some blood because Im always hearing about the shortage.

Is there a regular clinic in the hospital in Galway?

From the look of the calender there is a clinic in Greystones once every five months which is a real shame.

they dont seem to make it easy to donate. Every time i have ever looked on the website they never have anything in a reasonable time frame or in a reasonable distance.

Im living in galway and saw this urgent demand!!! checked the website on the 10th January. They dont have anything in my area till the 4th of February and even at that its a 20 minute drive away from the city.

if they are always short in demand why not have a permanent location in every major city thats open 1 day a week and everything will be sorted.

2 Giving Blood

I'd love to give blood, but I've been told by people that because I've had Leukeamia as a child that I can't give any, is this true, is there a doctor in the house????

Dunno, there are restrictions in place depending on how much blood and where from you got it from. If you had leukaemia, you probably got a lot of various things.

I would suggest getting on to the IBTS. They'll have a much more detailed list to hand.
