Bike Maintenance for NHS Staff
Do you work at East Lancashire NHS Trust Burnley or Royal Blackburn? Go Velo are offering a free bike service for NHS workers!
Here is what a critical care nurse at Royal Blackburn Hospital had to say about the offer:
"As a nurse on the front line, I took advantage of the kind Go Velo offer of servicing bikes of NHS workers. The service was extremely easy to book online and local too. James contacted me regarding the service and continued to do so until I dropped my unused bike of 3 years off to him. He was friendly but professional and he had brought my bike back to life within an hour. I would certainly use this service again. I would also recommend it to family and friends. Going out on a bike in these stressful times will be great for anyone’s wellbeing....especially a front line critical care nurse like myself. Well done NHS/Go Velo"
