Exclamation Blood type Information

Can anyone give me some advice on this subject:
I am shortly going to visit eastern Siberia. I have purchased ( on advice) an emergency medical kit. The kit contains a leaflet with an explanation to the receiver regarding the identity of the owner and asks some medical details to be filled in, including owners blood type.
I asked my GP for the information but I was surprised to find that they had no record of my blood type. They advised me to donate blood and ask the type of the blood transfusion service.
I cannot give blood because i take Leveothyroxin.
I then went onto the NHS website where, to my dismay, i was advised to do as the GP had suggested.
I thought that with the freedom of information situation this would not be a problem and I am very shocked that I cannot find out such a basic peice of information.
Can anyone give me any information or have had a similiar experience ?
Many Thanks. Noel Fennell

Re: Blood type Information

Typing blood is not part of normal physicals. It is usually just done when you are having surgery or donating blood. Good idea to donate to get the info so that you don't have to pay for the typing. If you've ever had surgery, the hospital/surgery center would have that info and could give it to you.
