Change to blood donor selection criteria

The lifetime ban on blood donations by homosexual and bisexual men will be lifted in England, Scotland and Wales.

Ministers have agreed to let men who have not had sex with another man in the past 12 months to donate from November.

Does this really make a difference, how many more donors is this going to give ?

What about the question of the rising rates of HIV infection in heterosexuals, should this be addressed ?

What are your thoughts?
