@GiveBloodNHS is urging people to make appointments to donate blood ahead of the August bank holiday weekend.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ People’s social lives are often busier at this time of year meaning less bookings are made to donate or people forget about their appointment.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ At Tooting only 74% of appointments are full for the week ahead of the bank holiday, (week commencing August 19th).⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It’s important blood is collected all year round to maintain healthy levels as blood donations cannot be stockpiled. Each donation can save the lives of up to three people, and it’s crucial NHS Blood and Transplant collects enough blood to help critically ill people.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jon Latham, Assistant Director of Donor Relationship Services at NHS Blood and Transplant, said, “We are incredibly grateful to all our loyal donors who take time out of their busy schedules at this time of year, to help save and improve lives.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Please make the time to come along to donate at Tooting Donor Centre, the centre is conveniently located at St. George’s Hospital, 75 Cranmer Terrace and donating blood is so quick and easy the whole appointment will take less than an hour.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “If you have an appointment booked but can no longer make it, please remember to cancel it so we can reallocate the slot to someone else.”⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Make and keep your appointment to donate at 75 Cranmer Terrace, Tooting, London SW17 0RB by using the NHSGiveBlood app, by calling the Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23, or see the link in their bio @GiveBloodNHS
