Welcome to Blood Bike Leinster
Blood Bike’s are a Voluntary Medical Transport service. Since 2013 we’ve been delivering a confidential specialist medical logistical service to the HSE Hospital groups, medical centres, hospices primarily but not exclusively in the Leinster Region 365 days a year. We can operate all year round regardless of adverse weather conditions by utilising a range of specialist vehicles from our fleet.
The most rewarding aspect of Blood Bikes is through our efforts, we are able to support our community and HSE colleagues to make a real difference to the lives of the patient, our free services helps the hospitals reinvest funds by using a free transport service back into areas where it is most needed; front-line services and patient care.
As a voluntary organisation our costs are funded entirely by public and private donations. If you think you could help either thru direct donations or sponsorship of goods or services please get in touch with us?
In most situations blood, blood products, human tissue, stem cells, minor organs and human donor milk or other medical items need to be delivered or collected urgently from a hospital or other medical facility. This is why we have different types of vehicles depending on the need’s of the hospital, we have motorcycles, van’s and 4 x 4s for extreme weather conditions.
Our group was established in April 2013 with a team of dedicated local volunteers and commenced live operations in November 2013. We support hospitals, Medical Centers, Hospices and other medical facilities across Ireland and fully supported by Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes (NABB) who have over 60 yr’s experience supplying a free medical service to hospitals both in Ireland and Uk.
Blood Bike Leinster are fully compliant with EU Directive 8.2.2003/EU 3373 and promote best practice.
