Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will continue to support the work we do.
We aim to provide a totally free, but professional, voluntary service, out of normal working hours for the transportation of Urgent and Emergency items, e.g. blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes, theatre equipment, in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle, solely for the benefit of the publicly funded emergency services and the patients being treated by them, within the NHS Hospitals.
We will provide this service through the night, and 24 hours per day at weekends and Bank Holidays, to the best of our ability, enabling hospital funding to be better spent on patient care.
We started operating in May 2012 and as the counter shows the number of call outs we are completing is growing exponentially. Your help in doing this is always appreciated.Please Donate Here.
As the winter storms whistle around it seems a good time to have a quick look back at some of the wonderful commercial organisations that support North West Blood Bikes.
Back in warmer days we were the guests of Southport Auto Centre in Wright Street Southport. The business is well known locally for being friendly and family run, providing top class sales repair and servicing for cars and motorcycles of all shapes and sizes. Owner Chris Regan and his staff have organised public events at their town centre workshops, promoting the name and activity of NWBB, with prizes ,raffles, give aways (and a mouthwatering barbecue!) Public interest was amazing and substantial sums were raised to keep our volunteer riders and fleet of specialist motorcycles on the road.
We are delighted to salute Southport Auto Centre, 31 Wright Street, Southport PR9 0TL - “Sponsor of the Month”

On 2nd May this year we will have been operational for 7 years and will have responded to 64,000 call outs.
All our 423 Members have done an amazing job, either controlling the riders, or being a rider, or fundraiser and spreading the word about who we are.

You can always read our Newsletters here to see what we are doing and who is supporting us. If you think you can help, come and join us. You don’t have to be able to ride a bike, although we constantly need riders, you can join us as a Controller, which basically means you stay at home and receive re-directed calls from any of our Hospitals. Then it’s a case of looking on the Duty sheets and sending a rider to do the run, or you can join us as a Fundraiser.
Whichever way you can help we will welcome you on board what we think is the best Blood Bike group in the Country. Just click the “Volunteer” button below."Volunteer.
