Welcome To South West Blood Bikes

Who are we…

Blood bikers are volunteers who use their advanced motorcycle skills in providing an ‘out of hours’ service, supporting our NHS partners to transport essential urgent supplies such as Whole Blood, Pathology Samples, Medication, Medical Equipment, Medical Notes and occasionally Donor Breast Milk to the NHS hospitals and hospices throughout Devon and beyond.

When do we do this…

We do this out of hours, so Monday to Friday from 5pm until 7am the following morning. At weekends we do this 24 hours. Over bank holidays we do this 24 hours. Planned urgent transfers as requested at other times…

How do we do this…

We are a charity who utilise the motorbike skills we have for the benefit of the service we provide, we used marked blood bikes and during periods of inclement weather a 4x4 car.

What is the cost to the NHS of this service…

Nothing

We look to enter into service level agreements with partners to deliver this volunteer service free of charge.

On our website we have details of the comprehensive ongoing fundraising events being held throughout Devon to support and fund the work we are doing in the community.

If you should like more information or feel that you would like to either volunteer or contribute to the ongoing success of our team, please do contact us or see the frequently asked questions for further information.
