The advantages of the UKB blood donation app at a glance
Appointments: The central function of the UKB blood donation app: Simply register, book an appointment and you're done.
Reminder: The UKB blood donation app will contact you when you can donate again. This function is active if you are registered and have indicated your gender, as the prescribed breaks must be observed between two blood donations: three months for women and two months for men.
Donation check: You can check in advance whether you meet the most important requirements for a blood donation. In the UKB blood donation app, for example, you will be asked how old you are, how much you weigh, whether you are female or male or whether you feel sick. Your data will only be recorded by your smartphone and will not be forwarded! Your answers to all questions rule out the most common reasons not to donate blood. Ultimately, the medical staff in the blood donation service will decide on your current ability to donate based on your detailed information on the nationwide donor questionnaire and a short health check.
Blood donation level: The blood donation level shows how many blood donations are needed annually to care for the patients in the Bonn University Hospital and some hospitals in the Bonn Rhein-Sieg region and how many people have already donated.
FAQs: Would you like to know why donating blood is so important or how a blood donation works? In the app you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions about donating blood.
