This still isn’t a vaginal/ anal sex issue. From the website you quoted “When a woman has vaginal sex with a partner who’s HIV-positive, HIV can enter her body through the mucous membranes that line the vagina and cervix. Most women who get HIV get it from vaginal sex. Men can also get HIV from having vaginal sex with a woman who’s HIV-positive. This is because vaginal fluid and blood can carry HIV. Men get HIV through the opening at the tip of the penis (or urethra); the foreskin if they’re not circumcised; or small cuts, scratches, or open sores anywhere on the penis. See the Prevention Q&As for information on how to lower your risk of getting HIV from vaginal sex.” Vaginal or Anal you are still at risk of catching HIV if you have unprotected sex with a partner with HIV The screener questions are designed to minimise the risk of potential donors having blood born viruses like hiv. They screen out the highest risk groups from the stats they have available, this happens includes gay men as well as anyone paid for sex, IV drug users, people who have had sex is country’s with high rates of HIV. You also have to wait after having a tattoo or piercing in case a dirty potentially contaminated needle was used. Transmission from tattoos is very these days due to proper licensing and proper sterilisation. “It’s possible to get HIV from tattooing or body piercing if the equipment used for these procedures has someone else’s blood in it or if the ink is shared. The risk of getting HIV this way is very low, but the risk increases when the person doing the procedure is unlicensed, because of the potential for unsanitary practices such as sharing needles or ink. If you get a tattoo or a body piercing, be sure that the person doing the procedure is properly licensed and that they use only new or sterilized needles, ink, and other supplies.” People who have had previous transfusions are also not allowed to donate.


I'm giving blood tomorrow, this will be the last time until I have done the marathon in April. Stocks are very low over Christmas so wanted to make sure I kept to my appointment even if it meant taking the day off from work.


No I haven't. Anal sex carries the highest risk of HIV transmission. Non penetrative sex is very low risk. It's the type of sex that should determine the risk, not the people having it. https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/risk/analsex.html


Lol.... Who knows !! Just plain old homophobia I guess.


(skeptical) You’ve totally missed the point here. Anal sex isn’t anymore risky than other types of sex it’s the prevalence of HIV and AIDS is greater in Gay men than other groups. Not all gay men will be having anal sex Other higher risks groups such as people who have had sex abroad in some African countries are excluded from donating too as these countries are known to have a much higher prevalence of HIV and AIDS.

Hmm, first you attack vaccination in general, now only flu vaccines. British Medical Journal link leads to an article, which is not widely available - it's a paid content. The fragment we can read for free, in no way proves anything you say. My conclusion - there are some reasons to believe that not all flu (let's just focus on this one) vaccines are equally safe and researched enough, but instead of fear-mongering, I'd rather advise checking the ones available from NHS, or in your local pharmacy thoroughly and doing your own research on the particular one. Try focusing more on sites that refer to governmental and scientific institutions and provide links to actual reports, not the ones that do not even link the reports they quote and you will be fine.


I am passing on messages that would concern any parent or patient regarding the Flu Vaccine's harmful effects which have been reported on extensively including in the British Medical Journal. I see that the well-funded Big Pharma/Vaccine Manufacturer's lobby group is out in force. Ignoring all the evidence and pushing vaccines is Big Pharma's job. It is a billion-dollar industry -- big money, big profits. Having worked for the NHS, I am well aware how influential Big Pharma is and can effectively lobby the NHS to do what they want -- despite the dangers. The official NHS line which doctors are 'required' to follow is to give 'Flu Vaccines'. Now there are many doctors who disagree, but are 'required' to follow the official NHS line, otherwise their careers would be curtailed. Especially as the NHS is the biggest health employer in the UK -- few doctors would publicly disagree. It was reported in the reputable British Medical Journal. Link referencing British Medical Journal: https://www.vaccinationinformationnetwork.com/flu-vaccines-worthless-and-dangerous/ and British Medical Journal Link: https://www.bmj.com/content/346/bmj.f3037 Yes, the British Medical Journal is an authority. The other sites I quoted above are pointing out the harmful effects. As I already pointed out the evidence of the harmful effects of the flu vaccine is overwhelming. Ultimately, it is down to patient choice, the information that they have and what harm parents and patients will permit on themselves and their children. Be warned that there are 'propaganda' websites whose intentions are to push the pro-vaccine agenda for well-funded vaccine manufacturers. Over and Out....


Here's some background information on the sites provided and who actually runs them Natural News (In short alternative medicine won the 2016 award for false health information) https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/kavinsenapathy/2016/12/23/naturalnonsense-friends-dont-let-friends-read-natural-news/amp/ Mercola (in short Dietary Supplements ordered by the court to stop spreading lies and false information to vulnerable people) https://www.quackwatch.org/11Ind/mercola.html Vaccination Information Network (in short while it may sound like a professional website it's actually imitating a real vaccine information website and to begin with started as a Facebook page that still prompted homeopathy) https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Vaccination_Information_Network There's some evidence on the background of the links provided my advice is go speak to someone who works for the NHS. If you think there big pharma and their all making so much money from scamming healthy people and making them sick how comes the NHS are billions of pounds in defecit and the doctors and nurses work 100s of hours unpaid a year handing over patients for terrible money and unsociable hours?

Dont forget diabetics can get a free card. Also never very well publicised


I can tell you that people are idiots in general and it's good that you can't just go buy medications, it's not that these drugs are cheaper abroad it's because you can't buy them off prescription chances are they're actually cheaper here but not for the consumer, the NHS actually makes money from these prescriptions. As for that care home scenario it wasn't the law preventing you from doing that and if anything if the patient had died chances are you'd of all been in front of a panel at some point explaining why you let them die.


Should be the same for dental as well so that's something Most likely you didn't get an NHS receipt at the time? to be able to get a refund you need to have an NHS receipt form completed by the pharmacy at the time of dispensing which is date stamped and signed by a member of staff with the amount paid for the items dispensed if you don't get that then you won't be able to get a refund, you have 28 days from the date on the receipt to get a refund from any pharmacy and 6 months to claim a refund direct from the NHS Business Authority (you post it off with a claims form) It's also good to know that some pharmacies now have the ability to process a 6 or 12 month PPC in-store if you ask I know this is now the case in LloydsPharmacy although it's fairly new so do expect a little bit of confusuion as they try and work out how to put it through the till ;) Unfortunately parental income can be a factor as well I believe?


Make sure you put in the date that you paid for your medicines as the start date of your ppc. Hope that helps (y)


If you have a pre-pay cert, If you can get an NHS receipt (FP57) from the online pharmacist when you pay for the prescription(s) you should be able to claim the cost back.

They are not private ltd companies normally. I can assure you the accounts do not work like that - and yes I DO know. I also know how the income has changed over the years. Anyway it does not matter. The point is for learning disabilities this is a great opportunity to get a health check and health plan with your GP.


More detail here about the LD healthchecks payment https://digital.nhs.uk/services/general-practice-gp-collections/service-information/learning-disabilities-health-check-scheme GPs are incentivised to provide all sorts of care- they get paid for patients being on many pathways (warfarin is another). Yes there are costs to the surgery for doing these things but you do realise that a GP surgery is a private company, so the profit on income ends up in the partners bank accounts?

Very clear and answers a lot of questions on organ donation.


Perhaps this website, and in particular this page, might help answer some of the questions and fears in the comments. https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk//supporting-my-decision/myth-busting/


Very informative and insightful! Thank you.


Good to know the diagnosis was benign. I hope it gets sorted quickly as any thyroid upset can turn both your body and mind into an alien world. I'm sure you'll overcome any fears about (live) organ donation if ever you get news of a close relative or life partner having kidney failure and you are found to be a donor match. Though I'm not quite sure from your comment if you have any apprehensions about (post-mortem) organ donation. Existential death is the off switch we all hit, but an organ or two removed for transplant after death are definitely no longer required by the donor. I'm not sure if it is still UK law: Every one of us who dies without having been seen by a doctor 28 days prior to death, or has no doctor able to sign a death certificate, will undergo a post-mortem (autopsy) examination where every internal organ and the brain is removed and further dissected out so a pathologist can determine the cause of death and issue a green note allowing your body to be released for preferred funeral rites. Even if you are a registered organ donor if your death is sudden and unexpected or is the result of an accident or suspicious you will be autopsied and no donation is possible.

It is to facilitate proving that the holder is a UK resident and thus entitled to receive equal treatment with regards to healthcare as nationals of the member state they have travelled to. Travel insurance is mainly to cover the cost of chargeable healthcare.

Bump for this thread, as I've just clocked up my 45th donation.


Thank you all for donating your blood. Transfusion saved my life 3 months ago. And although I wont be able to donate blood, two of my friends started donating theirs after my surgery. I also make sure that my son who is 6yo, is aware of how important blood donating is. Thank you one more time. It could be one of you who saved my life


I have been trying to book an appointment for about 6 months, every time I looked on the app the available appointments were in 3 to 4 months time. Imagine my shock when I checked last night and managed to get an appointment for today. Today was my 25th donation and the whole process of donating is still very drawn out, I usually try and book one of the first appointments of the session as you tend to get seen quicker but today was a mid session appointment and took around 1 hour 20 minutes from arriving at the venue to leaving the venue.


When the NHS stops giving me 6 month referral times, has an effective GP service, stops over charging prescriptions, offers cheap tests and screenings like those you can now buy cheaply online, improves NHS dental treatment to be more than just a preventative care service, gets on it's knees and begs for forgiveness, then I might consider giving blood. otherwise it's just not getting naff all.


100% agree with this. I'm O-neg and have donated 5+ times, but every time I try and book there are no slots in my area for 3 months. Turned up on a whim once and ended up sitting for 2hrs until every one else had left.

Anything concerned with health matters has to be good


They have to do more than offer statins they have convince patients to accept the prescriptions. Receiving more money if they do this is an incentive no matter how it’s worded. I used statins as an example, my point being that regular standardised health checks would be very beneficial as long as safeguards are put in place to avoid the over prescription of drugs. Early diagnosis of conditions that present no symptoms in the early stages would benefit the patients, the NHS and the taxpayer.

Spain received 75million visitors in 2016 and it’s tourism sector was worth 77 billion euros. This only accounts for 5% of it’s GDP. (data: World Economic Forum).

Your are correct to a point however the point of the NHS guidance is to "encourage" people to at least do some exercise. They have done research on this and there is a sliding scale of benefits and doing just 10 minutes will make a huge difference compared to doing nothing at all. Stating that people need to do an hour day will simple terrify many people who are out-of-shape, overworked and tired, and many of them will think that there's no hope so wont even bother trying. I started my exercise routines doing just 10 minutes and when I started to get fitter and healthier, my interest fitness grew and I started trying new things and extending my workouts. A few years later and I'm full of energy and love doing longer workouts but there was a time in my life when the idea of doing an hours exercise a day would seem like torture.


I thought you were joking until I read the article. *Facepalm*

It's very wrong people have to wait for 2 hours. No wonder there's a shortage of blood. Have made an appointment for next week.


I would be happy to give blood regularly, but it isn't easy trying to work out where they're going to be taking blood and when. It would be great if I could pop into a&e, or better still a local clinic with free parking and donate it whenever I am free, but what seems to happen in Wigan is the circus rolls into town, they hire a big venue and hope everybody just happens to be free on that day. Maybe it actually works better than my method, but i've only managed to give blood once just because it usually isn't convenient when I remember to check if they're taking it locally.
