By donating your organs after you die, you will help save and transform the lives of desperately ill people. Each donor is precious as fewer than 5,000 people each year in the UK die in circumstances where they can become a donor. So if you want to make a real difference join the NHS Organ Donor Register and talk about your donation decision with family and friends. Letting them know what you've decided now makes it much easier for them to support your decision to be a donor.
We are a public cord blood bank, are part of the NHS and it is free for you to donate your cord blood to us. By donating your cord blood to us after the birth of your baby, you are making a voluntary donation that could help any patient who is in need of an unrelated cord blood transplant, in the UK or anywhere in the world. The stem cells found in cord blood restore the function of the patient’s immune and blood producing systems. It is an alternative to using bone marrow, with the advantage of being immediately available when required.
