Sheerin welcomes changes to allow more people to become blood donors

Sinn Féin MLA Emma Sheerin has welcomed changes to blood donation rules which will allow some gay men to become blood donors. 

Emma Sheerin said: 

“I welcome this announcement from the Health Minister to change the rules on blood donation which will allow more gay men to become blood donors. 

“This change will allow men who have sex with men with one sexual partner who they have been with for more than three months to donate blood. 

“This is a step forward for the LBGT community and for equality. 

“It will also increase the number of people who can become blood donors which will increase the supply of blood and save lives.”
