    same here I wasn't allow to donate blood because I was staying in UK during the Mad cow disease saga .

    my sense is that the blood bank needs to rethink its strategies on how to get donors in. my sense again is that they are 'too conservative' in its approach.

    i think they should just promote blood donations more extensively. like make the public realise how important a pack is. some would just think ...

    "aiyas just one pack, i donate or not, no difference one la"

    that's the thing. actually same applies to me but do they ask you relavent questions like whether you have std or any past blood diseases? they do right?

    It's like an ant bite. The anesthetic that is. The thick needle won't hurt one bit after the anesthesia.

    dun worry, the only thing that seems to hurt me is when they use those small thingy to prick on my finger and tap some blood for testing.. hahaha

    the rest doesnt hurt. definitely not the big needle, cos of the anesthetic.

    I don't think it is. I organised a blood donation drive in my school last year. And I found out that a number of female students have donated before. Its not that pain, if not why would they donate?

    Anyway before you guys think of donating, if you have multiple sex partners or what, you got to declare it in the form....
    Have you read IT???

    Maybe you can suggest on how to be not conservative.

    If one can lose weight by donating, i'm sure there'll be a lot more keen people.

    Maybe our friend is thinking along the lines of 'more relaxed rules' for blood donors.

    Unfortunately, if there are stricter and more stringent rules for blood donation and even if it means to the point that you can't donate blood the moment u have sex with other ppl, I'm all for it.

    Hi, I think most of the people just feel funny to do it alone. Well, for me I did donate a feel times. I only donated once alone, and always with a friend. Perhaps when someone organise, more people will go. Anyway for this round of appeal from blood bank, my colleagues and I are going next week. We started a chain mail in the office, and those who always wanted to donate but shy, or find it inaccessible, or don't know go where to do it, can actually join us during lunch. ha. peer pressure...

    Just curious to know.

    Is there a difference between donating blood to a hospital or donating blood at the Blood centre.

    Heard something like the blood supply is not shared among the hospitals.

    There was once I wanted to donate blood to a friend. As the hospital was out of the way, I asked if I can donate at a hospital nearer to my place and transfer the blood over. The nurse didn't sound pleased.
