In creating one life why not save another?

It's easy to donate your cord blood to the NHS
Cord Blood Bank after the birth of your baby,
just like Bilal's mum did.

Amazing Stories

Since 1996, parents have been donating their baby's cord blood to the NHS Cord Blood Bank and we now have over 10,000 units frozen, ready and waiting to save someone’s life.

But, due to medical and scientific advances, the demand for this amazing gift is ever increasing and we need more cord blood units to be able to save more lives. Many lives in the UK and throughout the world have been saved from just one unit of cord blood and some of their amazing stories are included here.

Of course, these lives have only been saved due to the generosity of parents donating their baby's cord blood both in the UK and throughout the world. Read more about why some parents chose to donate their cord blood to the NHS Cord Blood Bank.
