Information for patients and families

Donating tissue is vital for researchers looking at the biology of cancers. Any patient wishing to contribute to this important research should be given the opportunity to do so.

The CCLG Tissue Bank has information leaflets for parents and children of different ages to read and decide if they would like to consent for any leftover tissue from solid tumours, including lymphoma, to be banked for research.
