National Blood Service to Review Blood Donor Bans
The National Blood Service has announced plans to conduct a review of policies governing exclusion and deferral from blood donation.
Deborah Jack, Chief Executive of NAT (National AIDS Trust), comments:
"NAT is not convinced by the justification put forward for the current lifetime ban for men who have ever had sex with another man and anyone who has ever injected drugs or ever received payment in money or drugs for sex. We are campaigning for the National Blood Service to review the restrictions.
