It’s the middle of the night, it’s cold and it’s raining. The phone rings and it’s answered immediately by the Blood Bikes East controller. There’s an urgent package that needs transporting between two hospitals. It could be blood, blood products, breast milk, medical products, samples for testing, test results or even transplant related tissue.
The controller calls one of the on-duty riders, who is on his or her way in less than five minutes. Thirty minutes later the item has been delivered and the biker registers another completed delivery with the controller who is ready for the next urgent call.
That’s what we do – 7 nights a week and around the clock at weekends.
Blood Bikes East provides an emergency medical transport service between the hospitals in Dublin and the Greater Leinster area.
This is all done by volunteers in their free time for no financial reward and completely FREE of charge to its contracted hospitals.
If Blood Bikes East did not exist, every time an item would need to go from one hospital to another, it would have to pay for a taxi, courier or ask the ambulance service to take it. BBE therefore saves the hospitals vital funds that can be used to help more patients.
We saved hospitals in the Leinster area somewhere in the region of €300,000 since our inception in 2013, with the majority of that saving occurring in 2015. And already, 2016 looks like it will easily surpass all previous records!
