THE Australian Red Cross Blood Service is extending its appointment times when it visits the Red Cross Rooms in Guy St this month.

Community Relations officer Kirsten McGovern said it was due to the success of the appointment-only morning session.

"Attendance numbers after 6pm have reduced dramatically and it is because of this that we have decided to change our opening hours and introduce appointments to our Warwick evening sessions, effective from September 18," she said.

"We hope that this change to the appointment system will assist us in collecting the number of donations we require in order to keep stocks at a safe level.

"From September onwards our blood collection clinic will run all day by appointment from 11am - 5.45pm."

It is expected that this change will benefit all blood donors, as waiting times should be minimal, with each person having a nominated appointment time.

Appointments can be made by phoning 13 14 95.

Blood donors are reminded to drink 1-2 litres of water or juice in the 24 hours prior to donating, have a substantial meal and to bring photo ID.
