If you are interested in donating your cord blood, please complete the form below. We will then send you additional information on cord blood banking and a sticker to attach to the front of your hand held maternity notes.

Asterisks (*) indicate compulsory fields.

Important:
  • Please do not register if your hospital is not listed, as regrettably the NHS does not have sufficient funding to collect blood elsewhere.
  • You should not attempt to gain a referral to give birth at one of these hospitals in order to have a chance of donating, as we are unable to offer any guarantee of collector availability.
  • In addition, not all collections are successful and only those of the highest volume and quality are suitable for banking for public use. 



You should only offer to donate your cord blood and tissue to the NHS Cord Blood Bank if you are due to give birth at one of the following London hospitals:
