I've received a blood transfusion, can I still register?

Receiving a blood transfusion may not stop you from registering as a potential blood stem cell donor:

  • if you received a transfusion following a one-off loss of blood during pregnancy/childbirth or after trauma you are fine to register
  • if you received a transfusion because of a different medical condition, please email us with details about the condition.

Regardless of the reason for the transfusion, if it took place outside of Europe, Australia or North America, just let us know by emailing
