I voluntarily give permission for the NHS Cord Blood Bank to collect, evaluate and process my cord blood, umbilical cord placental tissue, and place it in short term storage. I understand that following the successful collection of my cord blood, umbilical cord and placental tissue, I will be required to give an additional blood sample and I will be interviewed by a member of the NHS Cord Blood Bank staff to discuss giving informed consent for testing, use and long term storage. I understand that I do not have to donate and I can withdraw my consent at any time. If I refuse consent it will not prejudice my treatment. I agree to NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) holding my personal details in their donor database, and processing / sharing pseudonymised information with other healthcare organisations as necessary for the proper administration of NHSBT.
