Blood Bikes Wales
We are an enthusiastic group of people keen to make a difference. Most of us are riders and we aim to use our skills, time and enthusiasm to help the Health Service in Wales.
The NHS uses its own transportation system to move blood supplies, plasma, documents and other items between hospitals during the day on Mondays to Fridays. Between 7pm and 7am on weekdays, on weekends and on bank holidays, the regular system used to stop and the NHS used the police, the ambulance service, taxis and couriers to carry the vital supplies.
You can imagine what this costs the NHS. This is where Blood Bikes Wales comes in, our volunteers provide the NHS with out-of-hours transport saving substantial sums which can be used for frontline patient care. We estimate that for each pound we receive in donations, the NHS will save at least five pounds.
Our service is free of charge and operates between 7pm on Friday evening until midnight on Monday morning including bank holidays (even Christmas day!)
We work with four NHS trusts in Wales: Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (Swansea) Cwm Taf University Health Board (Merthyr Tydfil, Llantrisant) Hywel Dda (Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire) Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (Newport, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire). Blood Bikes Wales is a member of the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes which shares our quest to provide a reliable, free, high quality service to health trusts throughout the country.
Our meetings are held at Aberystwyth, Gorseinon, Pontyclun, Cwmbran and Narberth. Details are posted on our events page and Facebook. Please come along to meet us and find out more.
