I received the accelerated triple dose of Twinrix in October 2009 and have not received a booster since. Can I have the booster now or is it too late and will I have to start again?

If I understand you correctly you never finished your series.
I would simply get the next injection and then have your doctor check for protective antibodies against hepatitis A and B. If they are positive, then you will know that the vaccine worked.
