Emergency Supplies

Transported out of hours to save lives

Welcome to

North West Blood Bikes Lancashire and Lakes

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will continue to support the work we do.

Our mission

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 around a staggering 1000 per month. Each one of these calls saves the local NHS the cost of paid-for transport that is then available for patient care. Your help to continue the mission is always appreciated.

Spanset UK

Spanset UK are part of an international company providing an innovative range of products and services in the fields of height safety, lifting, load control and height safety management, backed up by technical support and expertise drawing on a wealth of experience from around the globe.

Some years ago NWBB decide to issue all riders with a dedicated set of load straps made and certified to internationally recognised standards of quality and safety. Spanset UK were the chosen vendor at the time.

Early in 2024 it was time to replenish stocks. The team at Spanset UK checked our detaild requirements. As a result, they were so impressed with what they learned of our mission to support the NHS with a free volunteer transport service the decision was made to provide our straps free of charge. On behalf of the Company Justin Evans and Lisa Cagna even delivered the straps in person giving them to meet the Committee and our bikes in person and get up close and personal with our liveried bikes.

Want to help and join us?

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."
