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!
Over the festive period of 2016-2017 we answered 125 calls.
Blood Bikes Scotland will predominantly attempt to service NHS hospitals in the Lothian, Borders and Fife areas.
We will offer a free out of hours service which will operate between 19:00 hours and 06:00 hours Monday to Thursday and from 19:00 hours on Friday evening right through to 06:00 hours on Monday morning. This service will operate 365 days of the year including all holidays.
We have three specially adapted motorcycles and soon we will be adding a Subaru Impreza to our fleet, Each is equipped with high-visibility markings. All our riders hold an advanced motorcycling qualification, such as the advanced riding test by RoSPA, or IAM.
In 2016 we carried human tissue, samples, 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
