British Bone Marrow Registry (BBMR)

  • Minimum criteria to access a BBMR donor (POL129)

The BBMR holds details of stem cell donors and cord blood donations from England, Scotland, North Wales and Northern Ireland.

It is responsible for recruiting, testing and registering blood donors who volunteer to become stem cell donors, and is part of an international network, performing searches around the world, to find suitable stem cell donors.

The service is for patients requiring a stem cell transplant and for whom no HLA compatible family member is identified.

All searches must be initiated by a Transplant Centre or Consultant Haematologist.
