The blood donation service is looking for donors for a clinical trial on blood plasma from recovered covid19 people. Be aware the existing restrictions are still in place so gay and bisexual men are banned from taking part unless they have not had sex with another man for at least three months. This is the existing rule that applies to blood donations from gay and bisexual men.
