The NHS CBB was set up in 1996 to collect, process, store and supply cord blood
NHS CBB is for the sole purpose of providing a life saving product from something that is normally thrown away. Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and umbilical cord following the birth of a baby. Following childbirth the placenta is normally thrown away along with the cord blood that is in it.
Cord blood is rich in blood stem cells, similar to those found in bone marrow, and these can be used to treat many different cancers, immune deficiencies and genetic disorders.

The local Chamber of Commerce 1215 covers Englefield Green, Egham, Thorpe and Virginia Water.
Egham Chamber of Commerce is an independent organisation with straightforward objectives - to promote business between members, and in doing so to represent the best interests of the community by encouraging commercial growth, and local prosperity. Increased wealth for your business means more wealth in the local economy, and greater benefits for the community at large.
We have something to offer for every business. Size does not matter, neither does the type of sector. If you are not already a member, browse through our site, evaluate the benefits, and join now. The very modest annual subscription is dependent on number of employees, and is detailed elsewhere.
The Chamber has a strong voice in the running of business affairs in the Borough of Runnymede - on rates, development and planning, traffic, parking, education and training. Recent Government legislation requires local authorities to consult with local business organisations. With Addlestone and Chertsey Chambers and in partnership with Runnymede Borough Council, the Chamber is a foundation member of the Runnymede Business Partnership with a prime objective of encouraging economic activity in this area. The Business Partnership organises regular Breakfast Forum Meetings on topical subjects. Frequent meetings are held between Chamber representatives and Councillors and Officers of the local authority on a wide range of subjects.
