BRS Blood Donor Day

The BRS will be holding their third Blood Donor Day of 2018 on Saturday 15th September at Girne State Hospital. Timings will be 10.00am until 12.30pm. We hope to see as many of you as possible on the day.

The Blood Bank is always very low on blood, and it only takes half an hour to donate and it literally could save a life. Please pass this message on to family and friends and encourage them to donate. New donors are always welcome.


Please note, that if you have undergone surgery and had a general anaesthetic, you cannot donate blood for 6 months after your operation, this is due to the anaesthetic remaining in your system.


The maximum age limit for donors is 68. First time donors the maximum age is 67.


Blood donations can count towards your residency blood test. As it stands currently, you need to give three times within the 12 months before your residency is due, with the last donation no more than one month before your residency expiry date.


The last BRS blood donor day of 2018 will be held on the 1st December.
