Welcome to

North West Blood Bikes Lancashire and Lakes

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will continue to support the work we do.

Our mission

To provide a Free, but professional voluntary out of hours transport service to our local NHS hospitals by carrying urgent and emergency blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes, theatre equipment, in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle, between hospitals that is urgently required. We began in May 2012 and as the counter shows the number of call outs we are completing is growing exponentially.

We provide this service through the night, at weekends and Bank Holidays enabling hospital funding to be better spent on patient care. Your help in doing this is always appreciated.

  • Yet Another Relay Run

    Today (28th July 2015) we were requested by Dumfries Blood Bikes to help take urgent samples by way of a relay run from Dumfries Hospital to Charing Cross in London, a distance of 350 miles. The relay involved Dumfries BB, Cumbria BB, North West BB Lancs & Lakes, Shropshire & Staffordshire BB and SERV Oxford. I we hadn’t done it it would have gone by taxi, at what cost to the NHS? To all those involved a superb job which just goes to show the help Blood Bikes give the NHS in the UK.The picture shows our rider, Steve Dunstan, handing over to Shrops & Staffs Mark Huxley.

Want to help and join us?

You can always read our Newsletters here to see what we are doing and who is supporting us. If you think you can help, come and join us. You don’t have to be able to ride a bike, although we constantly need riders, you can join us as a Controller, which basically means you stay at home and receive re-directed calls from any of our Hospitals. Then it’s a case of looking on the Duty sheets and sending a rider to do the run, or you can join us as a Fundraiser.

Whichever way you can help we will welcome you on board what we think is the best Blood Bike group in the Country. Just click the “Volunteer” button below."
