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

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

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission is to act as an Emergency Voluntary Transport Service which aims to relieve sickness and protect health by the provision of transport of urgently needed blood, blood products, patient records, drugs and other medical requirements between hospitals and blood transfusion banks, 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 being to deliver a service in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary.

Additional areas of operation:
In addition to the Mid-West region we are also working 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 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 Southern Ireland ____________
