Welcome to Blood Bikes Scotland
This group is an independent charity affiliated to the Nationwide association of Blood Bikes. We are based in Edinburgh and the borders and should not be mistaken for any other Scottish groups. We are still trying to raise funds for various equipment and services that we need to operate. Thank you very much if you are able to assist us in our ultimate goal!
Lothians bike was at Ikea Edinburgh on Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th of June 2017. The Borders bike was also be out and about at Tesco Galashiels, we both had very successful days, so thanks to all who came along and donated.
Over the festive period of 2016-2017 we answered 125 calls, and now up to the 6th and 7th of May 2017, we passed the 400th call out of the year in the Lothians.
Blood Bikes Scotland will predominantly attempt to service NHS hospitals in the Lothian, Borders and Fife areas.
We have just added another motorcycle to our three already specially adapted motorcycles, the latest in the fleet is A Honda NT700 Deauville which is ideal for all our needs. Our riders all hold an advanced motorcycling qualification, such as the advanced riding test by RoSPA, or IAM.
In 2016 we carried human tissue, samples, bloods, vaccines, urgent notes, medication and other essential medical items between NHS facilities throughout our area. We were also involved in cross border collections and deliveries which were carried out by Linda our Borders bike.
Blood Bikes Scotland need volunteers and financial help, if you would like to help financially, you can do this by pressing on the DONATE button on the left hand side of this page.
