The charities carry urgently needed medical items such as blood, biological samples, medical notes, x-rays and scans. The service is offered free of charge to the NHS and all members are unpaid volunteers. The existing NABB members reach more than 85% of the UK’s population and parts of Ireland, with further expansion planned, which will extend blood bike coverage to 54 million people.
