European Human Genetics Conference 2020

At the 53rd annual European Human Genetics Conference you can learn about what is at the forefront of human genetics whilst considering the education of the next generation of human geneticists.

There will be a range of speakers and abstracts for presentation during the conference as well as educational sessions given by invited speakers to update you on various topics in genetics. A large exhibition hosting over 100 exhibitors will be running alongside the conference programme to give you the opportunity to network and enhance the conference learning.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
 
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
 
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
 
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
