"Multiple invitation letters"

About: Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service

(as the patient),

Today I received 4 separate letters inviting me to two blood donation sessions, one with an invite letter, one with a form to be completed for each location.

This is a clear inefficiency and in any case I'd be happy to receive the invite by email.

Response from NHS National Services Scotland

Dear KMG,

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience or confusion caused. It is possible that if you have donated in more than one venue, your details have been allocated to both on our system and you have therefore received invitations to donate at both. Unfortunately on this occasion, the dates also appear to have been very close together.

We will be very happy to rectify this anomaly on your records to prevent it happening in the future. To arrange this, please contact me directly Lynne.willdigg@nhs.net or via our online enquiry form:


Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback, it is much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Lynne Willdigg

Deputy Head of Donor Services

Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service
