Clinical Genomics Service Specification Consultation Webinar
This webinar is aimed at NHS staff, healthcare professionals and policymakers
Thursday 29 September, 10am-11am
We are currently seeking views on proposed changes to the Clinical Genomics Service Specification. The Service Specification outlines standards for Clinical Genomic Services in England.
About Genomics Services
Clinical Genomics (previously called Clinical Genetics) are services where doctors (typically Clinical Geneticists) and Genetic Counsellors work with other health professionals to diagnose genetic conditions. They also assess the risk a patient will inherit or develop a genetic condition. They provide and co-ordinate treatment for patients with genetic conditions, and counselling and emotional support to patients and their families.
The consultation is a chance to make sure all stakeholders - including the public and healthcare professionals - can contribute views and ideas about the proposed changes. The consultation is open from 1 September and will close at midnight on 30 September.
