Blood Bike South is a charitable organization operating primarily
in the southern region of Ireland. Our mission is to assist public hospitals and other medical facilities, by providing a voluntary motorcycle transport service for medical materials on an out-of-hours basis
Blood Bike South is a charity run by a group of motorbike enthusiasts, to provide an out-of-hours FREE service to public hospitals and clinics in the south.
In a manner similar to existing Blood Bike groups in Ireland & the UK, our Mission is to provide a Voluntary Rider Service aiming to help relieve sickness and protect health by the transportation of blood, blood products, patient records, drugs and other medical requirements between public hospitals and blood transfusion banks, primarily but not exclusively in the Southern Region.
We hope to take some of the pressure off our local hospitals in relation to their rising costs in transporting these goods and hope that this saved money will be redirected into primary care areas such as staffing & facilities. We also aim to relieve the use of emergency vehicles in the transport of these items meaning that they are always available and ready to answer emergency calls.
Our services are provided by volunteers, who will have advanced training and undergo regular reviews of their skills. The volunteers give up their time to serve their communities and hospitals.
Without the generous sponsorship of local communities and businesses we would not be able to pay our running costs. If you would like to sponsor us, we would be grateful for any amount big or small.
We need riders, administrators, coordinators, fund raisers and helpers. Please contact us by email at or use our contact us form on our contact page and we will get back to you asap with any info you may require.
