Body Donation

The Anatomy Laboratory at UCL is governed by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA). We are guided by their standards and are regularly inspected.

Donating your body is a personal choice and one that raises many questions. The HTA offers guidance on how to donate, what to expect and what research and teaching educational institutions are permitted to carry out. 

Anyone using the facilities will be expected to adhere to the Anatomy Laboratory protocol.

Acceptance of bodies for all medical schools in London and the southeast of England is co-ordinated by a central office located in King’s College. To donate your body please contact the London Anatomy Office directly. They will guide you through the process and advise you on your choices.
