Welcome to Blood Bike Leinster
Blood Bike Leinster are a Volunteer Emergency Medical Transport Charity. Since 2013 we’ve been delivering a Specialist Medical Logistical Service to HSE primarily but not exclusively in the Leinster Region 365 days a year. We are able to operate all year round regardless of adverse weather conditions by utilising a range of specialist vehicles; from our Emergency Response Motorcycles & Rapid Response vehicles support for a true all weather capability.
The most rewarding aspect of Blood Bike Leinster is through our efforts, we able to support our HSE colleagues to make a real difference to the lives and care of our all-important patient beneficiaries – our free services support and equipment provision empowers our HSE colleagues the means to reinvest funds currently utilised in urgent transport back into areas where it is needed most; front-line services and patient care.
As a Voluntary Professional Service and proud representatives of the third sector, our service costs are funded entirely by generous private and public donations. Could you help us do more?
In some situations blood, breast milk or other medical items may need to be delivered quickly to a hospital or other agency. Blood bikes with their distinctive livery and narrow profile can quickly negotiate through busy traffic reaching their destination much faster than a four wheel vehicle could.
Blood bikes was established in April 2013 with a team of dedicated local volunteers and commenced live operations in November 2013. Blood bikes support hospitals and other agencies across Leinster. We are 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
