Very Good App

I’ve been using this app for years now - It’s a very good app to download if you give regular blood donations in England.
You can make, view and renew appointments at any location. It can display the closest or the soonest appointments available within your search area, and then you can book whichever time slot is convenient. You can also look up and keep track of previous donation details, even ones that you conducted before downloading the app.

I’ve also donated in Scotland, and ScotBlood are seriously lacking this App. I personally had many delays in donating because there was nothing like this available up there and ScotBlood were lacking in sending out reminders to me.

Helping others made simple.

Giving blood to help others couldn’t be easier, considering raising money’s takes a lot more time and effort which isn’t so easy holding a job and family down, so an hour or less out of my life just donating blood can take all that time and effort away but still contribute massively to help others in otherwise life threatening circumstances, for me it’s a no brainier I’m glad to be of service for others in a way that’s not that taxing and the staff are great it’s quick and relatively pain free at the cost of a little sting and then a warm or cold drink and a little snack and that’s that you can help lots of sick adults and children.

Works well and doesn’t do loopy things like the website

Works well without any glitches and is a time saver. An improvement that would help me would be to be able to search an area for venues more widely than the present choices which could offer, for example, within 10 miles of home or work. As someone who is in and out and therefore has limited weeks in which to donate, the ability to snag a slot in a wider geographical area would help. Another help would be a seamless link to public transport links to the venue (+ a local coffee shop, pub, grocery store would be both useful and potential revenue stream). Just saying.
