We are delighted that you are interested in our work at the Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's Tissue Bank. You may be considering becoming a tissue donor - information brochures are available for both Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's in the downloads below, which aim to answer any questions you may have about the process.

Please read the information provided carefully - it’s important that you feel you have enough information to make the decision to become a brain donor. Please discuss your decision with your family and the people close to you. It is equally important they support your decision and understand the donation process so that they can ensure your tissue is successfully collected.

If you decide to register as a donor, you will need to complete and return the set of three documents that we have provided for download below (be sure to choose the set of forms applicable to either MS or Parkinson's)

  • Consent for the procurement of tissue – this confirms your wish to become a donor.
  • Next-of-kin agreement – for your next-of-kin or legal representative to complete in order to confirm that they understand and support your wishes
  • Information about your health – a short form that helps us collect key medical information regarding your health


If you would like to receive these documents as physical copies in the mail, please contact Mrs Sue Fordham on +44 (0)20 7594 9734 or via email (s.fordham@imperial.ac.uk). A Freepost envelope will be included for the return of your completed forms.

When we receive your completed forms we will add your details to our brain donor register. Copies of the forms will be sent to you for your records, as well as a confirmation letter and your donor card.

Thank you once again for your interest in registering as a donor with the Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's Tissue Bank. If you would like to discuss the donation of your tissue or have any questions or suggestions about the work of the Tissue Bank, please contact us by phone or email.
