Any experience of banking cord blood, especially from London hospitals?

I've posted this in Childbirth as well, but thought maybe someone over here might have some experience to share.

DC3 is due in November, but meanwhile, DD1 is undergoing medical investigation for an unexplained disorder relevant to blood (no significant explanations and all blood tests exhausted) and/or bone marrow (coming up next week). We're hoping that of course nothing untoward is wrong with DD1, but for the first time, we think there might be some benefit in banking cord blood when DC3 is born which could potentially help DD1 if needed.

How do you set this up with the hospital?

How do you find a cord blood bank and get them to work with the hospital?

Any information greatly appreciated.
