Are you an NHS professional looking to advance your skills in Genomics?

 

Join us on Tuesday 26 June or Wednesday 27 June to find out more about our postgraduate courses and modules in Genomic Medicine at our informal Lunch and Learn talks.

Our Genomics course follows a curriculum designed by Health Education England and modules are especially designed for NHS professionals to improve skills and support career progression.

If you work in the NHS our modules are available with or without assessment, fully-funded by Health Education England through the Genomics Education Programme (GEP).

St George’s is one of a select number of universities to offer this programme. We are able to offer flexible study packages suitable for working doctors and healthcare professionals an interest in genetics and genomics. Qualifications are awarded by St George’s and taught in partnership with King’s College London

Come along to one of our lunchtime or evening events to find out more.

Organiser

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.
 
From April 2019 the interactive test ordering tool will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to directly order tests online.
