The body will replace the fluids of the donated blood in just 24 hours. The red blood cells will be replaced in about 6 to 8 weeks. After 3 months, a person can choose to donate again.
This could be used by someone in need anywhere in New Zealand.
Blood is in constant demand for treatment of accident cases, cancer victims, people with haemophilia and for use during surgery. The donated blood is separated into components so that one allogeneic donation can help several patients.
