Plasma can be frozen for up to two years and blood products made from plasma can be stored for up to two years.
The donor shuttle service is provided by NZBS to take donors from workplaces and other organisations to the donor centre or blood drive and back again after they have donated blood.
Please note: this service maybe limited at some NZBS sites, please contact your nearest donor centre to find out more.
"Getting a group from work to donate blood is such a simple thing to do. The Donor Shuttle Service is very convenient and the NZBS team are always friendly and look after us well. Our team enjoy the time out of the office, it gives us a chance to put our feet up and the biscuits always go down well and we are helping to save lives at the same time!"
