Give Blood

What is blood? Read our FAQ on blood and learn about the blood donation process. Find out if you are eligible to give blood - take the eligibility quiz.

Blood Donation Questionnaires

When you attend to give blood, you'll be asked to complete a 'Health and Lifestyle' Questionnaire. There are two types, one for 'first time and returning donors' and one for 'regular donors' (this contains less questions, as some information will not change between donations). You will be asked to sign a donor declaration to confirm your answers are honest and accurate. The forms below are reference copies only. Please do not present them at a donation clinic.
