Donating tissues and samples

Many clinical trials will ask for your consent to donate your blood, tissue and other samples. This would be strictly for the medical and scientific purposes that will have been detailed in the studies participant information leaflets.

When consenting to a trial, you may well also be asked to consent for your samples to be used in subsequent ethically approved trials.

If you do decide to donate samples and then change your mind, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

All samples donated to research are stored securely and in accordance with the Human Tissue Act 2004.

If your samples are required to be transported for analysis outside of UH Bristol, you will be notified of this in the consent form, and an ethically approved process for transporting the samples securely will be in place.
