Clinical Genetics

Within East Genomics we have five clinical genetics services supporting patients and clinicians who use our service.

All of these services provide clinical support and genetic advice as required. In some cases, for examples where patients are pregnant or where predictive testing is necessary, someone from the clinical genetics team would see the patient.

It is important that clinicians are aware of the correct Clinical Genetics service to use; this helps to avoid referrals being sent to the wrong service.

Whilst genomic tests within the East of England and East Midlands should be directed to an East GLH laboratory (Cambridge, Nottingham or Leicester), for some services close to the boundary of our catchment area, clinical genetics referrals should follow your usual clinical pathway, which might be outside of our area.
