NHS Worker Fund

Supporting NHS staff to travel during Covid-19.

In response to the pandemic, we invited NHS Scotland health boards to support their staff get to work by bike through our Cycling Friendly NHS Worker Fund.

The scheme was specifically aimed at supporting staff who might not otherwise be able to cycle to access a free bike and a lock.

NHS Scotland health boards were invited to apply for funding between £2,500 and £15,000 to cover resources for staff including:

  • Bikes
  • Lights
  • Mudguards
  • Puncture repair kits
  • Bike locks

Due to affordability or temporary contracts, some NHS staff are not eligible for the Cycle to Work scheme; this fund aims to overcome these issues and ensure that more people are able to access bikes and to cycle.
