What We Do

Derbyshire Blood Bikes is part of a national network of blood bike groups covering most of the UK and Ireland. Most groups are part of the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes, and Derbyshire is proud to be a part of that Association. All groups are independent charity organisations, raising their own funds and agreeing to working arrangements with local NHS Trusts. In that respect, all blood bike groups are distinct in size and scale of operations.
