Midland Freewheelers Blood Bikes

Delivering a professional urgent Motorcycle Courier Service to the NHS

We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year serving Hospitals, other NHS facilities throughout the West Midlands and the Midlands Air Ambulance.

Our service is provided by a team of volunteer riders, drivers, coordinators and fundraisers, all at no cost to the NHS.

100% Voluntary
100% Committed

We would like to thank all our sponsors, supporters and members and the anonymous individuals and companies who so generously give their time, expertise and financial support.

What We Carry


We transport a range of blood products including whole blood, plasma and platelets.

Breast Milk

We collect donated breast milk from mothers and take it to the Milk Bank at Birmingham Women’s Hospital. From there we deliver to sick babies in hospitals across the region as well as setting up relays with other blood bike groups

Medical Equipment

Along with other medical equipment, we are often requested by the neonatal unit at the QE to deliver and collect Oxymeters or Pulseox machines which are pieces of equipment used for monitoring new-borns that have recently left hospital, allowing them to go home earlier.


FMT or Fecal Microbiota Transplants are incredibly important to patients across the region and the wider UK. We collect transplants from the University of Birmingham and deliver via relays with other blood bike groups to get to the end patient. Google FMT, you’ll be amazed how it works and the life changing effect it has

Chemotherapy Drugs

This involves some of the more time critical work undertaken by Midland Freewheelers on behalf of Birmingham Children's Hospital. Most of the drugs we transport have a very short shelf life so have to be delivered in a timely fashion to ensure patient success.

Pathology Samples

These are the bread and butter of our work. We transport samples from medical facilities to laboratories across the region, some routine, some more critical.


We deliver medication from central pharmacies to patients in other hospitals and nursing homes.

Patient Notes

A number of these jobs are focused around the renal units across the region, transferring notes to and from hospital wards and specialist units.
