HSE PCR Test Appointment Alerts

01 January, 2022 - 1 min read

The HSE PCR Test booking portal does not have enough appointments for the demand of people looking for PCR tests. Many people are refreshing the web portal daily to try and secure an appointment, only to find that there are none available.

Based on the time to input your data into the booking portal, coupled with how quickly appointment slots are being snapped up. I would estimate there's collectively hundreds of wasted hours of people checking this portal for an appointment daily. So I have created a Telegram bot that will check for appointments and will send a message to a county specific Telegram channel when they are available.
