Blood donation is easy

On Thursday, September 24, the Methodist Church Centre in Buckingham Street Aylesbury will host a blood drive.

NHS bosses say that every blood donation is vital but NHS Blood and Transplant particularly needs to ensure supplies of the universal blood group O Rh Negative which is often in short supply as demand is so great.

It also needs to ensure supplies of rarer blood groups A Rh Negative, B Rh Negative and AB Rh Negative as these are also vulnerable to shortfall.
