The Clinics are appointment clinics and those willing to donate are asked to call 1 800 222 111.

The evening clinics will be offering a first appointment at 4.50pm and donation appointments are scheduled until 8.10pm.

The clinics are being held at The Dome near Semple Stadium from Monday June 26th until Thursday June 29th inclusive.

At present the most urgently required donations are for the following blood types; B negative, O negative, A and B positive and AB positive.
