Revision on NHS Donor Guidelines
The aim of the petition is to call for a revision on the specified guidelines for donating blood, not just for the homosexual community.
Currently, all those who have had any form of sexual contact with a gay or bisexual man, even with a condom, cannot donate blood for a year after this contact. This is not just about gay men. Women who have had sexual contact with bisexual men can also not donate blood, even if they have used a condom.
This petition calls for a revision of these regulations, as all groups specified above can donate organs, bone marrow, and get married.
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
There is already an e-petition about this issue.
