From July 2012 to December 2018 we estimate a saving to the NHS and Hospices of £341,350
Here at Blood Bikes Manchester, we pride ourselves on keeping all statistics, facts and figures and this page will hopefully give you an insight into our jobs, clients, items carried, fleet usage etc.
Bikes and Cars
Not only do we use motorcycles, but also have for larger consignments or bad weather, 2 cars and one van. Our 2018 statistics show:
Our 5 fleet motorcycles completed 732 jobs
Our 2 cars and 1 van completed 546 jobs
We will only ever carry one box on our motorcycles (Blood / Plasma / Platelets / Donor Breast Milk) although we will carry 2 boxes on the rack for the Air Ambulance runs.
In 2018 we completed 18 emergency runs (deemed very urgent by the hospital), 564 urgent runs, 680 none urgent or emergency (includes routine sample runs) and 16 relay runs (linking up with fellow blood bike groups to transport consignments across regions).
