What is the NHS Organ Donor Register? | Organ Donation Scotland
The cash-strapped hospital, which has a budget deficit of millions of pounds, is calling on 'altruistic men' aged between 18 and 45 to come forward to give sperm samples in London's first 'not for profit' sperm bank. All money raised would go straight into the coffers of the hospital, which is planning on selling sperm to infertile couples. Hospitals are not allowed to provide sperm free on the NHS, meaning many infertile couples have to resort to buying sperm from private clinics or online - but bosses at the hospital said they could offer sperm for sale to 'cut out the middle man'. I can get three vials from one ejaculate. Consultant gynaecologist Gidon Liebermann, who is also heading up the sperm bank, said: "We wanted to take out the whole profiteering element of selling sperm.
Top Reasons to Donate Sperm
Donor sperm may be needed either because of fertility problems in the male partner or because there is no male partner. Sperm donation is a generous and positive act that can give many couples and women a child of their own. If you decide to become a donor, you will have made the choice to help others in fulfilling their hopes of have a family. We aim to develop a diverse sperm bank and are looking for donors from all nationalities, religions, ethnicities and cultures to meet the demands of the people who use our service.
