Purpose of Role:

Experienced advanced riders needed to transfer vital blood and medical supplies to hospitals. Operates 7pm to 6am Monday to Friday and 24 hours at weekends and bank holidays.


Role Description:

Volunteer riders needed to transfer vital blood and medical supplies to hospitals on our specially adapted blood bikes. The service operates 7pm to 6am Monday to Friday and 24 hours a day at weekends and bank holidays. We save the NHS thousands of pounds as they do not have to use local taxi companies or couriers when their internal courrier service is unavailable.
We also hope you will participate in fundraising activities as we need to generate enough funds to keep the service running.

 
Skills and Qualifications:

Riders must be over 25 years of age, hold a current advanced riding qualification such as IAM, ROSPA or an ERS A' Pass - or be trained to an emergency service standard (i.e. Police Class 1).
You must also have no more than 6 penalty points on your driving licence (inclusive of any pending convictions or fixed penalties).
We can provide advice and guidance to enable you to complete your training, so don't let that put you off - if you are an experienced motorcyclist who can ride safely and make good progress, then passing an advanced test should not be a problem. We might even be able to supply training at substantially reduced rates.
