Want to donate plasma?

Less well-known, but just as important!

Approximately 55% of our blood is made up of a yellow liquid: plasma. Plasma comprises 91.5% water and 8.5% dissolved substances such as proteins, sugars, fats, salts, hormones and vitamins. These substances are vital for effective blood-clotting and for fighting viruses (micro-organisms).

Vital substances

By donating plasma you can help people who have lost a large amount of blood due to a medical emergency. Patients with blood-clotting disorders and newborn babies with severe jaundice also require plasma. Plasma is also the building block for many life-saving medicines

Ready to give plasma? That’s great – you’ll be helping a lot of people!
