Closing Date for Online Petition:

Terms & Conditions
We believe there is a pressing need for more, and more regular, blood donors in Scotland - yet at the same time various members of the LGBT+ community may be denied the opportunity to donate.
- What are your views on the current blood donation rules in Scotland?
- Do you believe the current regulations are fair and equitable?
- And, have you ever been affected by the regulations currently in place?
