World Blood Donor Day 2015: blood types [infographic]

World Blood Donor Day 2015 is celebrated on 14 June each year. This Sunday, the theme is “Thank you for saving my life,” a chance for everyone who has benefited from a blood donation to thank the donors that selflessly donated to the cause. The demand for blood is always high as the shelf life of donated blood is only 42 days. We’ve gathered information about blood types, blood donation, and Clinical Haematology from Oxford Medicine Online for the following infographic on what you need to know about blood.
