The Lifeblood Donor Center at 7 Bridge Street, Werribee, will be open seven days a week from May 30.
Lifeblood spokesperson Genevieve Dobson said it is a “milestone for Melbourne” with all metropolitan donor centers open seven days a week.
“Werribee is active six days a week, but the feedback we’ve received from donors is that they would like more opportunity and flexibility,” she said.
“We expect the extended hours will enable Lifeblood to raise 50-60 additional donations each week, which is great news for patients.
Ms Dobson said the center has recently undergone several upgrades, including additional benches and a new open space.
“Donating blood only takes an hour of your time and can save up to three lives. With more flexibility than ever, there has never been a better time to roll up your sleeves and help patients in need,” she said.
