Book an appointment

We recommend for all blood donors to book an appointment to donate whole blood, which refers to ordinary blood donation, where all blood components are collected in a single blood bag.

Appointment booking is available at all Blood Service donation sites.

Questions and answers regarding appointment booking:

Who can book an appointment to donate blood?
All blood donors, also first-time donors, can book an appointment to donate whole blood.

Does booking an appointment require registration on the site?
No it does not. However, registration enables you to view and change any appointments you have made later on.

Why does the Blood Service recommend appointment booking?
Blood donation is easier and faster if you book an appointment. A booked appointment also reminds you of this important event, and allows the Blood Service to prepare for the daily number of visitors and plan the collection of blood.

How much time should I reserve for the blood donation visit?
Donation of whole blood will take 5 to 10 minutes, but you should reserve a minimum of half an hour for your visit because you'll need some time for resting after the donation and having an unrushed cup of coffee.

There is a group of us coming to donate blood. Where can we book an appointment?
Groups can book an appointment by calling the nearest Blood Service Centre. Please note: We don't recommend coming to donation site as a group during the corona epidemic.

For more information, please call the freephone information line for donors on +358 800 0 5801 (Mon to Fri from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
