This means that from 7 October 2019donors who have been deferred by the IBTS for this reason or people who have not attended a clinic for this reason may now be eligible to give blood provided that they meet our other medical guidelines.  Thanks to everyone who attended the last clinic.  See you on Thursday 20 February 2020 and please encourage someone to come with you.
