Our mission is clear - to save lives, and improve outcomes for patients by supporting healthcare providers where rapid movement of the items we transport will achieve this. We move Whole Blood, Pathology and Microbiology samples, Donor Breast Milk, Medical Records and X-Rays, Medical Equipment and Test Kits, and medications including controlled drugs - in fact anything that is required urgently by a medical facility, providing it can fit on a motorcycle. Founded in 2018, initially servicing Plymouth in Devon, we are now expanding our service across the County. We are the only Blood Bike charity in Devon to have been assessed by and to currently hold membership to the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes. This means that we have been inspected and meet or exceed their standards, and now form part of their national "Coast to Coast" relay, enabling movement of items across the country by member groups in a very short time if needed. Our charity has no paid staff, and makes no charge for our service. Every penny raised by the charity is spent directly on providing our free Blood Bike service supporting the NHS, Hospices and other medical facilities we serve. All of our volunteer riders hold advanced riding qualifications certified by either the IAM or ROSPA. We provide our services from 1700hrs to 0700hrs weekdays, and provide 24 hour cover during weekends and public holidays. 24 hour cover is being provided during periods of national lockdown due to Covid-19. Our vehicles comprise a fleet of ten liveried motorcycles, supported by two Skoda Scout 4 Wheel Drive cars and a van for use in inclement weather.
