Blood Bike Mid West is a charitable organisation fully staffed by Volunteers, which provides a Voluntary Medical Transport Service to/from Hospitals, private hospitals, clinics or hospices and individuals in their own home in the Mid-West Region.

We operate a 24/7 Emergency call-out service using volunteer riders and drivers. We do not charge for this service.

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission is to act as a Voluntary Medical Transport Service which aims to relieve sickness and protect health by the providing the transport of urgently needed blood products, blood samples, breast milk, patient records, scans, drugs and any other medical requirements between hospitals, primarily but not exclusively in the Mid West Region.

Base of Operation

A chinese dragonOur base of operation is Limerick city with our primary goal to deliver a service in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary.

Additional areas of operation:
In addition to the Mid-West region we also work closely with other blood bike groups within Ireland to deliver a full service countrywide. This means on occasion travelling outside our base of operations to meet up, handover or collect urgent deliverables heading in all directions from and to the region.

One very important additional service is the collection and transportation of breast milk. The Human Milk Bank is located in Fermanagh and regular trips are required to ensure the Maternity Hospital Limerick is kept stocked in order to help support premature babies and their mothers.

Blood Bike groups are the sole transportation providers for the breast milk bank in Ireland.
