Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great app - makes the whole process so easy
This app is a great success and makes the whole process of booking appointments very simple. I am able to rebook my next appointment whenever I remember as the app just offers you an appointment at your favourite location (or any other that is handy for you) at the first available opportunity after the minimum time you should wait between donations. Choose your time and bish, bash, bosh - it’s done! If it turns out that appointment doesn’t work nearer the time, it is very simple to rebook. It also stores your donor number and other helpful info. Really impressed with this app. I recommend it!
Great idea by the nhs blood service, by using this service I’ve been able to arrange regular donations again. The day after giving blood you are able to book your next donation which is very handy as they’ve stopped taking bookings during donation times. It’s great how the app shows you all donation points local to you especially as they stopped doing donations at my local public hall!
The only thing that I would change is that you are only able to make one booking at a time, for me it would be useful to be able to book at least two donations in advance!
