Welcome to Blood Bikes Scotland
This group is an independent charity based in Edinburgh and the borders and should not be mistaken for any other group that already exists. 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!
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 two specially adapted motorcycles, 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.
If requested we will be carrying human tissue, samples, vaccines urgent notes and other essential medical items between NHS facilities throughout the area.
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.

We are totally manned by volunteers who receive no financial compensation for their time or costs and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
