A date for your diary, Tuesday 3rd May!  Switch on Channel 5 at 6.30pm and watch the SSCBB team of Paul, Colin, Hadyn and Chris compete on EGGHEADS. And not a bloodbike in sight.

Well seems that Colin, Haydn and Paul all worked to the Egghead brief, but Chris clearly didn't get the message ๐Ÿ™‚ I can only say this as a confirmed member of the Egghead club myself. Can't wait to see this guys

We were on M54 on the way to Shrewsbury and had the pleasure to see the amazing sight of all those bikes coming in the opposite direction. Any idea how many were taking part?

Stavros! Nice to see you there!

Had my photo taken with him a few years ago at Prescott Hill blood bike weekend

I know the one on the left, but who's the bloke on the right photo bombing?๐Ÿ˜

Did he get your autograph?

Were Compo and Clegg not with him? ๐Ÿฅ {I’ll fetch my coat ๐Ÿ™„}

Awesome

Can’t believe he asked for a selfie Sammy

Thank you for all you do for us at the Countess.

The Hub Cafe in Newport, Shropshire are holding an Emergency Services Week and we were delighted to be asked to take part.
Rider Dave S. brought along bloodbike Fiona and Helen B joined him.
Tea and cake and sunshine! What more could you ask for?  The volunteers at the Hub looked after us well and it seemed the ideal time for a photoshoot and the children loved mini moto Elron.Image attachment

good luck guys

With the ever-increasing need to support the NHS in caring for their patients, the demands upon the #Charity grow each year. #SSCBB needs to grow to meet this increasing demand. To do so, we need more #Volunteers, whether that be in the form of riders, fundraisers or controllers. If you are interested in joining us, take a look at our website to learn more! https://bit.ly/3hGaGTf
Good to see so many members at the AGM last night and to hear how well the charity is performing. Thanks to Oak Farm Hotel for hosting us and feeding us!
Our new Motor Guzzi Blood Bikes were seen together this morning outside the Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham when our Shropshire rider Pete O. met up with North Staffs rider Dave L. when delivering samples from their respective areas.
The East Staffs rider, Chas W.  at the same time was delivering milk to the Birmingham Milk Bank and the Cheshire rider, Les W. was picking up donated breast milk from a donor in Shropshire to deliver to the Milk Bank at Chester. In addition Jeremy C. was collecting and delivering FMT.  A typical busy SSCBB morning.Image attachment

What people say about us

โ€œThe blood bikes are vital to getting our life saving faecal transplants to critically ill patients with C. dificile infectionโ€

Professor Peter Hawkey, FMT Service Lead, PHE Public Health Laboratory Birmingham

โ€œOn a regular basis we need to transport samples urgently, between Shrewsbury and Telford, and also from here in Shropshire to Birmingham and beyond. In the past it has been quite difficult, out of hours, to get those samples moving quickly, so it has made a huge difference to us to be able to rely on blood bikes to get those samples moving for us.โ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

โ€œThe voluntary service the blood bikes offer us has been instrumental in widening the scope of our FMT service across the country and ensuring costs are a low as possible for the NHSโ€

Dr Vicki McCune, FMT Service Manager PHE Public Health Laboratory Birmingham

โ€œThere is certainly times when the quicker we can get results back, the better the outcome for the patient, so blood bikes are helping to save lives and, at the same time, they are saving the NHS lots of moneyโ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

โ€œWe are so grateful to the volunteer riders who give up their time to courier blood products and urgent samples for testing between our hospitals and the regional NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) centre in Birmingham. Every minute counts when it comes to helping seriously-ill and injured patients and being able to call on the blood bikes round the clock helps us to provide safe, effective treatment and transfusions.โ€

Paula Gardener, Chief Nurse Burton Hospital Trust (covering Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth)

โ€œWe very much appreciate all of their efforts and the support they give both SaTH and the wider NHS.โ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust
