As for donating blood here (as I did regularly in the UK), I was told I needed to pay for a doctors certificate to say I was fit enough to donate, then persuade the Red Cross to carry out the donation. Took me so long to get that far, that now at 62 I'm too old anyway.

At least I tried.

 

I'd like to donate blood too but I assume I can't walk into any hospital and just get them to do it. If it was simple I'd pop into my local hospital and give them my A negative blood when needed.

I think you were given wrong information.

Donating blood is common in Thailand. With all the road trauma they need it.

it is called “Borijak lued” 

 

You can do it until you are 70.

 

Here is the website.

Thanks for the link.

The page doesn't seem to have any English, despite the home page having an 'English' link, it doesn't load.

 

I see the contact email is for the  Red Cross. It was them contacted. I still have the email from 2018 when I was 59.

I called the number they gave me for Udon Thani, They told me as I was then 59, I was too old to make a 'first donation'.

I will try again tomorrow.

Then the grieving family made the decision to donate his organs so that others could live a better life. This they called the final sacrifice of their relative to others. 

 

Six people will directly benefit from his tragic death.

Ultimate gift.. bless them.

Can you provide an update after speaking to them tomorrow as a mate of mine said he also tried to donate blood recently and they said he was too old at 56-57 and that was in the Udon Thani area.

 

So if the link provided proves to be good for you, then I could tell him to check it out.

Sure, I'll keep you updated.

I have a relatively rare blood type and donated in the UK. A couple of years ago a call out on local radio for my blood type needed for an emergency. I went to the hospital mentioned and was told "cannot" no reason just "cannot". I assumed it was my age, early 60s at the time.

The Chrome browser will translate in place. It's far from perfect but it's still quite useful for sites like that.

There's a lot of information there, but it says you can donate until age 70, but (among other things) if you're taking medication, even aspirin, they may not accept you.
