Why make do­nat­ing blood harder?

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – The change from drop in ses­sions at Raig­more to ap­point­ment only has made it dif­fi­cult for many blood donors. It’s ob­vi­ous by the num­ber of ap­peals that less folk are do­nat­ing!

I’ve do­nated all my life, over 115 times, and en­cour­age ev­ery­one to do­nate.

How­ever re­cently I’ve tried three times to get an ap­point­ment with­out suc­cess, though I never failed to get in on the drop in sys­tem!

Per­haps an al­ter­nat­ing sys­tem needs im­ple­mented. An­other is­sue is park­ing, ded­i­cated spa­ces at the donor cen­tre need to be pro­vided.
