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.

We have been featured in a short film for the National Lottery Awards.

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."
