Cord blood banking for a specific medical need

In very few cases, there may be a specific medical need to bank a child’s cord blood. In these instances, a consulting physician may be able to arrange the collection and storage of the cord blood, free of charge through the NHS or Anthony Nolan’s directed donations service. If you feel this could apply to your situation, please consult your physician.
