Take 2 minutes before you make an appointment

To avoid unnecessary travel, we suggest checking that you are  currently able to give blood by doing the test below (it will only take 2 minutes). The test is by way of information only and the questions will not be recorded. It does not replace the questionnaire and the medical interview that take place before giving blood. For more details, please see the list of main contraindications.

Based on your replies  - unless you have continued with the test despite being notified of a contraindication - you are allowed to donate blood. However, this online questionnaire is for general guidance only. At the time of the collection, you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and undergo a medical examination ahead of the donation. Only the doctor is qualified to confirm whether or not you are suitable to donate blood.


Previous Step: 0
Current Step: 1

This questionnaire is for general reference only. It neither replaces the medical questionnaire nor the medical examination performed by a doctor prior to the donation. As such, it may be, in certain situations, that the doctor will not allow you to donate your blood, whether temporarily or for good, even though this online questionnaire says that you are okay to donate. More than anything else, this decision is made to make sure you donate blood without danger to yourself or to the patients set to receive your blood. Which is why it is important that you answer the questions asked in the questionnaire and those asked during the medical interview truthfully.
