"Looking forward to going back!"

About: Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service

(as the patient),

Can I say a huge thank you to all the staff at the Strathaven blood donation event yesterday.

It was my first time donating blood and the staff all made me feel relaxed and at ease, despite my apprehension around doing it! I was well looked after following my donation and overall I have had a very positive experience.

Looking forward to going back!
