What's Your Blood Type?

In partnership with the NHS

What's Your Blood Type?

Find out your blood type, sign up for the donation register, watch a film and listen to a panel discussion. This free, drop-in event aims to boost people’s confidence in giving blood.

NHS What's Your Blood Type

Come along and find out your blood type. This is done by NHS staff taking a small sample of blood from the finger and measuring the reaction on specialised cards. The whole process should only take 5 minutes. You’ll also be one step closer to becoming a blood donor by signing up to the NHS blood donation register. Drinks and snacks served throughout.
