Teesside Bloodrun Volunteers support NHS through Pandemic

Bloodrun EVS are a charity who provide the NHS with a transportation service, for everything from medical notes, to clinical samples, blood and vital equipment. The charity are currently providing a wide range of services during the pandemic, including the following;  3D printing (alongside their partners at The Blacksmiths Arms in Swainby) of face shields/visors for NHS and other front-line staff. This equipment is currently in significant demand as their profile is heightened within the healthcare community. Bloodrun are also receiving regular requests from their clients, James Cook University Hospital and The University Hospital of North Tees, to assist with returning patients home to help alleviate “bed blocking”.  In addition to this, the charity have undertaken additional work, having taken numerous Covid samples to Newcastle for testing as well as transporting a Covid machine back to North Tees. They were also asked to cover all GP surgeries over the Easter weekend after they were instructed to remain open. With funding from TVCF they have been able to continue with their services and the increased demands on their 50+ volunteers.
