Blood Bikes Wales are an enthusiastic group of people keen to make a difference. most of them are riders and they aim to use their 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 used to cost the NHS. This is where Blood Bikes Wales comes in. their volunteers provide the NHS with out-of-hours transport thus saving substantial sums which can be put to better use. and they estimate that for every pound they receive, the NHS will save at least five pounds
