Motorcyclists across the region have signed up for the scheme which will provide free out of hours transport for blood between hospitals.
The 'Blood Bikers' will be on-call 24 hours a say, seven days a week, so that crucial medical supplies will be able to reach those who need it most.
All registered Blood Bike riders will need to go through a rigorous training programme before getting accreditation to ride for the service.
Previously emergency supplies would have to be sent by taxis.
That money can go towards patient care and other key NHS frontline services.
