Talking to my TC/Brit friend over lunch today, having explained that I was called into hospital Saturday morning to donate a unit of blood for a particular patient in need of an emergency operation, he informed me that in Turkey people get paid to donate and thinks it's the same here. Surely not. What a disgrace if so!

I may be wrong (probably am) but aren't blood donors in USA paid to give blood also?



I've given blood for many years here in GB.

Agree with Richard it is a disgrace you give blood to help those that need it, not for any reward/payment etc

I gave blood for many years in the UK and was more than happy to do it

In 1980, myself and 2 colleagues gave blood in Kuwait and declined the 10 dinar payment (about 20) on the basis that we didn't get paid in the UK and were only doing it to help others. A week later we each got a personal thank you letter from the ruler (the Emir) which we thought was a very nice gesture.

My wife had a bypass operation in Adana,Turkey and she has one of the rare'ist blood groups.

I was aked to go and get 6 units of blood and had to go to the army camps etc to ask for the blood.

I was called back to the hospital and then six or seven young men turned up and they gave the blood we needed and when I asked how much,was told there was no charge and when I offered to pay the doners they refused.

Would like to add that the treatment my wife received was first class.

Another point is that in Turkey blood groups are noted on driving licences.

Carndi what a great idea to have your blood group on your licence, would save a lot of hassle
