Our NHS needs you!
George was pleased to be able to donate convalescent plasma, the NHS desperately need more relevant people to participate on this scheme.
Who can donate convalescent plasma?
Convalescent plasma can only be donated by someone who has had the virus. It is also important that donors have fully recovered from COVID-19, and that their body has had time to develop a good antibody response.
We are currently collecting plasma no sooner than 28 days after recovery.
We urgently need more people who have had coronavirus to consider donating to help treat people with COVID-19.
We are collecting COVID-19 convalescent plasma for use in trials looking at possible treatments for COVID-19.
The trials are investigating whether convalescent plasma transfusions could improve a COVID-19 patient’s speed of recovery and chances of survival.
We will also be collecting convalescent plasma so that, should the trial show improved outcomes, we will be in a position to supply this treatment to hospitals more widely.
