By giving your consent, you will give the Blood Service Biobank the right to collect samples and data for the Biobank during your blood donation visits. Providing a sample will not affect the duration of the blood donation, the total amount of blood donated, or future blood donations.
If you’re interested in joining the Biobank, read the biobanking consent details and the associated information sheet beforehand. The blood donation staff will give you the official consent form to complete and sign before your blood donation. Once you have signed the form, your consent is valid until you withdraw it.
