    Default Free blood tests?

    Is it not possible to get free blood tests/proof of being ok by having a blood donor card. From what I know if you are a blood donor you give blood it gets checked and it gets used to help someone. Thus by having a donor card, means your blood has been passed as ok? Or is it not that straight forward?

    You might find out your blood group but other than that....

    Your gp will test your blood for free, what are you testing for?

    Think everyone thinks SAFEMMA is a good thing. All the arguments seem to be about cost and who pays. You can get free blood tests then? Why the cost through SAFEMMA then?

    I would hazard a guess that if it goes thru safe mma's stringent testing then there is less of a chance of contamination or any foul play happening.plus there is a lot morbenefits than just having your blood tested

    Not all GP practices are helpful & it may get awkward if you require a 'certificate' or dated & signed proof to give to a 3rd party, e.g. a fight promoter, that you are HIV & Hep clear (rather than a 6 year old Blood Donor card...).

    For that they may charge, or refuse to do it on principle if it's to allow you to compete in a sport. This happened to a mate of mine (cough) at both GP and knob rot clinic.
