Blood Bike West is an all-volunteer charitable organisation established to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, scans etc out of hours, over weekends and over holiday periods, between hospitals, healthcare sites (hospice, clinics, care homes, laboratories etc) at a time when they have no other method of doing so.
Outside normal office hours, hospitals have no permanent method to transfer urgent medical supplies, scans or test samples between hospitals and other sites. Blood Bike West offer to carry out this service free of charge, ensuring the limited resources of the health & care providers can be used where it makes a difference. BLOOD BIKE WEST is dependent and funded entirely on charitable donations and with some key sponsors for equipment, is run solely by volunteers, giving their own free time to run and deliver the service.
In critical situations, blood or other medical items need to be delivered urgently in order to save a patient's life. Blood Bikes, with their distinctive livery, emergency lights, and narrow profile, can quickly get through busy traffic reaching the destination sooner and effectively. For out-of-gauge items which would not fit on a motorcycle, and also for times of poor or dangerous weather, we are indebted to Northgate Vehicle Hire www.northgatevehiclehire.ie for their continued sponsorship of our liveried Blood Bike West Van. We encourage everyone to support them wherever possible.
