Explanation of Condition


Transgender people are not excluded from joining the Anthony Nolan register. Potential donors who would like to join the register should record their self-identified gender in the ‘male / female’ check-boxes on the application form.

The sex of a potential donor is one of the factors that clinicians consider when identifying the best donor for their particular patient. Therefore, at the point of joining the register, should a potential donor voluntarily disclose that their self-identified gender is different to their sex assigned at birth, we will ask permission to record this on the application form.

• If the potential donor gives permission, this should be recorded in the ‘any other information’ field in Section C of the physical application form and on page 4 of the online application form

• If the potential donor does not give permission, they should be advised that it will be necessary to disclose their sex assigned at birth should they ever be chosen as a potential match for a patient

If the potential donor has any further questions, please advise them to contact the Donor Support team on 0303 303 0303.

All information provided in the application process is treated with the strictest confidence.
