Why Blood Bikes?

Blood Bikes have been a feature in the UK since 1969. In recent years the number of blood bike groups has grown significantly and there are now hundreds of motorcyclists who freely volunteer their time to the service. People often ask why a blood bikes service is needed and what it is that we actually do. If you look at the aims of all the blood bike groups you will see some common themes:

  1. Saving money for the NHS

  2. Giving something back to the community

So why should blood bike groups do this? It is very simple – if they didn’t then more money would have to be found from the taxpayer. Blood bike volunteers give their time, and sometimes their own money, freely.   In 12 months of active service with NHS Blood Bikes Scotland have responded to more than 1300 calls and already saved in excess of £30,000.  Funds that can be distributed elsewhere within the NHS.
