Please use our volunteer appointment form to arrange an appointment with us.
When you come we will test you for Drugs of Abuse, HCV, HIV and HbsAg with signed
consent from you. If all the tests are negative and we successfully collect 400mL blood, we
will reimburse you £40 for your time and inconvenience, paid by BACS or by cheque immediately.
The Collection and Recovery period (when we check your blood pressure) takes one hour.
Please allow sufficient time although we try our best to be as quick as possible.
