Our service is simple. We offer a free of charge transport service to the NHS as a way of ‘giving something back’. Our service is run by volunteers in their own time. #itswhatwedo. Blood Bikes Scotland support teams in both primary and secondary care including GPs, District Nurses, Care Homes and Community Hospitals as well as secondary care hospitals.

We deliver small urgent items that are required to be moved from one site to another or to a patient’s home in the community. By using motorbikes, we are able to move these items quicker than conventional four wheeled vehicles which is vital as many items are time critical. This service is provided in all weathers and always with a smile and in a professional, friendly, trusting manner. We provide an efficient and sustainable service that is patient focussed and a pivotal support aspect to patient care both in the hospital setting and in the community.

Proud to be supported by Ewan McGregor

Blood Bikes Scotland (BBS) is an amazing charity, 100% run by volunteers. They form part of the National Association of Blood Bikes (NABB) and do fantastic work on behalf of NHS Lothian, Fife, Borders and Forth Valley.

They provide a free courier service transporting equipment, medication, documentation and blood samples between main hospitals, community hospitals, nursing homes, labs and patients’ home addresses.

No volunteer is paid and they do not receive any NHS or Government funding. They are highly commended for this excellent service to people in their time of need.

I send you my sincere appreciation for all your hard work.
