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.

Great App - missing some functionality though.

Having just received the “developers Feedback” cut & paste response it OBVIOUS they have not read my comments AT ALL:-
1). Overall it’s a good app
2). If your a Plasma / Platelet donor you CANNOT use it as they suspend your login.

3) Is this issue being being investigated? Or are the comments just a waste of feedback??

Original Review - Overall this is a GREAT App giving you the ability to book WHOLE Blood donations, see you Blood Donor ID and your donations to date. However, I’ve recently become a Plasma donor (2 donations booked and a 3rd scheduled) and am in the process of becoming a Platelet and Plasma donor BUT was shocked to find that the App ONLY works for Whole blood donors, in fact I can no longer log into the App so have lost access to my account / schedule and booking service! I was told (by by staff at the donation centre) that “It’s being worked on”, but there are unfortunately too many mixed messages, for example when I called the central Blood Services number I was informed that the App was ONLY for Blood donors and my account had been suspended now I was a Plasma Donor. If the developers are indeed fixing / updating the App I’d be happy to act as a Beta tester for them!!

Thanks for the feedback. Although the app is currently only available for whole blood donors we do have plans to look into making it available to other donors, though the timelines for this are not known yet. As soon as we know more we will be letting our donors know.

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.
