Blood Donors of Plymouth Street

This Page is an unofficial resource for Plymouth Street, Ottawa, donors.

My feeling is that such nice people as I've always found there - and that includes the nursing staff of course - would be good to communicate with and get to know outsidethe clinical environment. Internet provides a way.


7 Sep 1999 - People who have spent a total of six months or more in the UK since 1980 are no longer qualified to give blood. The reason is that there may be a risk of transmitting variant Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease through blood transfusions. This policy is a precautionary measure and will be reviewed as adequacy of evidence becomes available.

This exclusion affects the author of this page.
