BLOOD BIKE WEST is a charitable organisation established by local volunteers to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, out of hours, between hospitals and healthcare sites and laboratories.
Our hours of service are 7pm to 7am Monday to Thursday and 7pm on Friday to 7am on Monday morning (24hour coverage week ends and bank holidays)
Outside normal office hours, when their internal courier service is not available, hospitals have to rely on taxis or couriers to transfer urgent medical supplies or test samples between hospitals and other sites. Blood Bike groups, across the country, seek to carry out this service free of charge, ensuring the limited resources of the HSE can be used where it makes a difference. BLOOD BIKE WEST is dependent on charitable donations, solely run 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
