"Free" Rapid Response Medical Transport Service.
Blood Bikes offer a "FREE" essential medical transport service to the HSE group hospitals, this service operates 365 days a year, Inc Christmas, St Stephens day and all public holidays, some groups operate a 24hr service were resources are available, others operate a 7pm to 7am service
Blood Bikes do not receive any government funding or intervention for an essential life saving service, blood bike vehicles can be seen regularly travelling up and down motorways from hospital to hospital, attending events and fundraising at shopping centres throughout Ireland, when people see the vehicles they mistakenly take them for state owned or HSE vehicles which is not the case. Each group have to maintain and equip their own group by fundraising, 100% of everything that is collected is put back into the running of the service and therefore we rely solely on generous donations from public and corporate sponsorship and fundraising activities.
Blood Bike groups are run 100% by volunteers who give their time freely to enable this essential free service to continue, everyone involved be it riders, drivers, controllers, fundraisers even admin staff receive no payment of any kind whatsoever, all volunteers are trained to a very high standard and continually monitored to ensure we maintain those standards while providing a service to hospitals, hospices and medical centres throughout Ireland.
As demand for our "free" blood bike service continue to grow so does our running costs, we cover thousands of miles each year if you or your Company would like to make a donation, or sponsor good's or service's please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
