Donor information form

A form which must be completed for all UK gamete donors, requiring information to confirm the donor's identity, physical characteristics, ethnic background and medical history. The donor can write a personal description (pen portrait/picture), provide their reasons for donating, and add a goodwill message. The non-identifiable information contained in this form can, upon request, be made available to patients requiring donation, to parents of children conceived with the donor's gametes, and to children conceived with the donor's gametes (once the latter reach the age of 16). When children conceived with the donor's gametes reach the age of 18, the full content of this form can be made available to them on request.
