About Give Blood Session Eaglesham
When you arrive to give blood, you will receive a warm welcome and your name will be entered into our system. You will then be asked to fill in a donor health questionnaire.
A nurse will also have a brief chat with you if you are a new donor, or if you have not given blood for 2 years or more. This is simply to check you are in general good health, and giving blood will not harm you or the person who receives it.
Next, the technical stuff! A small sample of blood will be taken from your finger. This is to test your haemoglobin level,or your iron level, to make sure your body can spare a pint of blood. After this, you will be offered a local anaesthetic before lying on the bed to give 482 mls of blood (which is actually less than a pint!). This process will last for up to ten minutes. You can then rest on the bed with your feet up for a few minutes before enjoying juice and biscuits. Congratulations - you've earned it!
