MY partner attended the blood donor's clinic at Elme Hall.

She sat there for over an hour, took the blood test and continued to wait, after a while she was taken to the bed to donate, she was then asked how much she weighed, upon replying she was then told she couldn't donate because she did not weigh enough.

It would put her health at risk if she continued!

She has donated before at her present weight and lighter, did that not put her health at risk?

Why was she made to wait an hour in a room full of nurses who I believe should have noticed her size?
