When donating, you will give around 470mL of blood. This is about 7% - 8% of the blood volume of an average adult, or 1.5 cans of soft drink, plus 15mL for test samples.
All donors are required to complete their own Donor Health Questionnaire, called a Donor Session Record Form, which includes a detailed health questionnaire whenever they present to donate blood.
Once completed, donors sign a declaration that to the best of their knowledge the health information given is correct.
They also consent to the testing for blood groups and evidence of some infections in the blood that they donate.
