Cord Blood Donation

Unofficial Mad Cow - April 19

I live in Australia and have always been told that I cannot donate blood due to having lived in England. It's something to do with the innoculation period of that Mad Cows Disease. I've recieved a consent form from my hospital along with an info booklet regarding Cord Blood donation. I assume that if I can't donate blood then I can't donate the cord blood either. I just wondered if anyone might have any idea or experienced this?

I'd say fill out the consent form, etc, if you want to donate the blood. Then, they'll let you know if you can't - but if you can, there won't be anything else you need to do.
