Welcome to the National Gamete Donation Trust

On this site you will find clear and practical information mainly for those considering becoming an egg or sperm donor but also for health professionals and those requiring treatment with donor eggs or sperm.

To help you understand what is involved in egg or sperm donation and how to go about becoming a donor you can contact our confidential helpline on 0845 226 9193.

We will be able to give you impartial advice or put you in contact with someone who has already been through the process.

Donors are people from all walks of life - there is no such thing as a standard donor.  What they have in common is a desire to help people to achieve the pregnancy they otherwise couldn't have.

What they also have in common is that most donors say:

"It's one of the best things I have ever done"

The National Gamete Donation Trust crowns Manchester Fertility the country’s first ‘Donor Centre of Excellence’

The National Gamete Donation Trust (NGDT), the country’s leading egg, sperm and embryo donation services charity, has formally recognised Manchester Fertility’s exceptional care and treatment of gamete donors.
This North West fertility clinic is the first in the country to be awarded this accolade – the NGDT’s new and prestigious kite mark, which celebrates and rewards clinics which reach the gold standard in donor care.
Over a six-month period, the NGDT conducted a rigorous assessment of the Manchester clinic’s donation procedures and processes. Extensive analysis of all elements of clinic life in the context of donation was carried out – from the way in which that all-important first tentative enquiry from a potential donor was handled to the manner in which the clinic expressed its thanks once the donation process had been completed. And, of course, absolutely everything that happened in between.
Laura Witjens, NGDT’s CEO, says:

"During our intensive clinic assessment procedure, Manchester Fertility demonstrated that its excellence extended way beyond its pure clinical practice – it treats potential and actual donors as generous and special human beings, and with the dignity, respect and sensitivity they deserve, but which is sadly so often lacking in other clinics."
