I have to have a blood test for various things, but they can't do it do it out of school hours. They are open longer, but the blood tests finish at 3.20pm. School finishes at 3.15pm I am only on a temporary contract at a school, and have only been there since January, I don't want to ask for time off. Had to refuse the first appointment. I don't drive, and it takes me about an hour to get there and back. I have always managed to get blood tests/hospital appointments outside of school hours before. Not sure why I'm posting this but ggrr!
