About Us

Derbyshire Blood Bikes is a registered charity (1143149) providing an urgent medical courier service to the NHS in Derbyshire.

Our aims are;

  • help the NHS provide more timely treatments to local patients
  • save the NHS money on their transport costs
  • operate a sustainable, efficient and effective charity

Transporting lifesaving medical items including blood and blood products, biological samples and medication, equipment and medical documents. We also transport donated breast milk into approved milk banks, which is then used to support feeding of premature or seriously ill infants. If we can carry it safely ….. we will transport it!

We always want to recruit more volunteers for a variety of roles to add to the volunteer motorcyclists and drivers providing a 24/7 hour service.
