#NHS70 - Get involved

Since its launch in 1948, the NHS has relied on the public for support. Do you want to give the NHS a special present for its 70th birthday? Sign up now to give blood and help save lives.

Giving blood and organ donation

Every day thousands of people’s lives are saved or improved thanks to the generosity of donors like you. But, sadly, there are still lots of patients we can’t treat because we don’t have enough supplies. There’s an urgent need for donations. Please help if you can and give the NHS a special 70th birthday present.

Give blood

Blood is always in high demand. Most people aged 17 – 65 can donate.

Giving blood saves lives. The blood you give is a lifeline in an emergency and for people who need long-term treatments.

Many people would not be alive today if donors had not generously given their blood.

We need over 6,000 blood donations every day to treat patients in need across England, which is why there’s always a need for people to give blood.

Each year we need approximately 200,000 new donors, as some donors can no longer give blood.

Join the Organ Donor Register

Organ donation is giving an organ to help someone who needs a transplant.

Transplants can save or greatly enhance the lives of other people. But this relies on donors and their families agreeing to donate their organs
