How we help to save lives

Where we work

To keep staff safe from the spread of COVID-19, the vast majority of Anthony Nolan’s workforce are currently working from home, though this is under continual review.

Our donor management and core management teams usually work from our head offices, in Hampstead, North West London, close to Hampstead Heath. Our Histocompatibility Laboratory and Research Institute are located on a separate site 500 metres away, in the grounds of the Royal Free Hospital. We also employ a nationwide network of fundraisers and donor recruitment managers. In September 2008, we opened the Anthony Nolan Cell Therapy Centre in Nottingham, which deals with research for our cord blood bank.
