  Donors are people from all walks of life and ethnicities - there is no such thing
as a 'standard donor'. What they all have in common is their desire to help
people and make a real difference in someone's life.
 
   
 

What is the process for donors?

Initial Contact – A brief telephone questionnaire, asking a few individual questions and also offer you a screening appointment.

At the first appointment we will explain the whole donation process, ask you to complete a questionnaire and also provide a semen sample for analysis/test freeze. We will also ask for your consent to contact your GP to check your medical history.

At the next appointment will be with our counsellor, who will be able to discuss the implications or any private and confidential questions you may have about the process. 
We will also arrange for blood and urine samples, to screen for various diseases. You will also be asked to undergo a physical examination.

When the screening checks are complete regular appointments can be made for you to make donations. This normally involves making  around 10 to 15 visits.
