Donating blood

BLOOD donations are a vital aspect of the UK’s medical resources, and the need for blood is greater than ever.

Western Isles residents will have the opportunity to donate blood next week as the Scotblood team set up at the MacLeod Memorial Hall on Kenneth Street, Stornoway, on Tuesday, November 22 and Wednesday 23.

Open sessions will run on Tuesday from 3.30pm to 5pm, and again from 6pm to 9pm.

And on Wednesday, donations can be made between 10am and 12 noon, 1.30pm to 4pm, and from 6pm to 8.30pm.
