The call from NHS Blood and Transplant comes as blood stock levels around the country have fallen, due to higher cancellations due to illness and the annual drop in donation over summer when people are busy with holidays and events.
Donors with O positive are particularly needed, although all other types are welcome, especially O and B negative.
Hospitals are continuing to receive all the blood they need but more donations are urgently needed to ensure stocks do not fall further.
Appointments can be made at www.blood.co.uk, by calling 0300 1232323 or via the NHS Give Blood app.
