"Giving blood"

About: NHS Blood and Transplant

(as the patient),

A new appointment system to give blood. I have been told that my appointment will be 50 minutes late. What was wrong with first come first serve? A lady has been turned away because there are no appointments. The old system seemed much better and less staff too!
