I gave them a ring this morning, it is as expected. There are no sessions coming up apart from the one in Colchester which is 20 miles away because there isn’t anything booked. I know that Trinity Park which was an alternative to my local session, is going to be a vaccine centre, but I still don’t understand why there’s no other sessions coming up locally at all and the guy on the phone didn’t really know any more than me!

I usually go to Maldon. My last one there was cancelled, and no more have come up for that venue, it used to be a regular one.

I think it's because they can't find a way to have separate entrance and exits. Could that be the reason for you?

Don't know about the app, but on the website you can book more than one session. However, if the two sessions are not far enough apart (16 weeks or 12 weeks, is it?) it will cancel the first one when you confirm the second.

I currently have bookings for 27 Feb and 5 June.

Got a text today to say my blood had been used at University College Hospital - didn't have to travel far! :-)

Not been able to rebook at the West End Centre, doesn't seem to have any available dates. I might try ringing instead.

I tried last March - iron levels were too low so 'banned' for a year - think my problem was linked as had been training for a HM (which was cancelled - so I then moved my appointment forward!)

Got something to say?
