Advice & information on giving samples for medical research

During medical treatment you may be asked if you are willing to donate samples for research. The information you are given to help you decide may be confusing at first and you may want some time to think it over. I have set up this web-site to help you make up your mind. Remember – donating samples for research is entirely voluntary and refusing will not affect your treatment in any way.

Donating samples outside of the United Kingdom

This web-site relates to donating samples for research in the United Kingdom. Although the principles are the same in other countries, the regulations and other details may be different and potential donors are advised to check with the organisation requesting samples.

If you are interested in blood or organ donation please visit the NHS Blood and Transplant web site. If you would like to donate your body after you have died to a medical school to help with medical education please visit the Human Tissue Authority web site for further information.
