Welcome to Blood Bikes Scotland

Blood Bikes Scotland are a dedicated team of volunteer motorcyclists, who commit their time to provide a service for NHS Lothian, Fife & Borders, offered free of charge as an alternative to taxis or couriers as a way of ‘giving something back’. We deliver small urgent items including blood samples, donor baby milk, equipment, medication that are urgently required to be transported within the community and beyond.

This group is an independent charity affiliated to the Nationwide association of Blood Bikes (NABB).

In 6 months we have answered over 550 calls and project within 12 months to save in excess of £20,000 for the NHS.

Current hours of service are Monday – Friday 18:00 – 22:00 and Saturday & Sunday 08:00 – 16:00.

Volunteer riders are required for the areas we operate in Lothian, Borders and Fife.  You must be over 25 years old with a clean licence for 3 years (5 years for accidents), hold an advanced rider qualification RoSPA, or IAM.  Riders use bikes provided by Blood Bikes.
