Patient Services

We are here to support you

We are here to advocate for you and empower you to host your own donor drives in your community. Whatever educational material you need we will support you.


Patient support drives

We work with friends and families of patients, local communities, and volunteers to hold events to inspire and encourage people to register as potential blood stem cell donors.

  • Would you like to host a donor registration event?
  • Do you know a company that would like to get involved?
  • Would you like to start a virtual drive for a specific patient, at your workplace, university or club?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

Which type of drive?


Host a live event to encourage communities, neighbours, colleagues, or your own family and friends to become potential blood stem cell donors.

The actual registration process at the event will be quick and simple. Each person will be required to:

  • check that they are eligible to become a potential donor
  • complete a short consent form, and
  • use three cheek swabs.

Virtual drive

This is an alternative way to hold an event. We can set up a unique, personalised landing page where you, your colleagues, friends, etc., can register. Once registered, their swab kit will be sent directly to them. This is a perfect option if you have a community, family or group who are geographically scattered.

Support from DKMS

We will support and guide you through holding an event. Our donor recruitment managers work with you every step of the way, providing training, materials, and ongoing help.
