We schedule bone marrow donors from Monday to Thursday from 10:00-11:30. However, it is possible to come on other days and times by appointment. If necessary, we will confirm a pass for your employer.
If you are also a blood donor, the best solution is to combine your blood donation with joining the register. In this case, however, it is also necessary to agree on this procedure in advance by contacting the email or number provided.
