You can understand the NHS being super careful. Look at the continuing fall-out from contaminated serum imported from abroad..... May are still suffering.

Indeed, the medical screening is a lot more searching than it was when I first started as a donor.

As a follow up to my last donation, I received a text to say that my donation had been passed to Manchester Royal Infirmary for use as required.

This was just after the two week notification of donor illness had passed, you are asked to inform if you become unwell in the fortnight after your donation, up to this point all products can still be traced and withdrawn.
