Could you help us ensure our service is inclusive for everyone?

We want our Genomics Medicine Service here in the South East to be available to everyone. To do that we need to ensure that everyone, regardless of where they live, or their background, has equal access to our services.

Can you help us?

We’re looking for passionate people to join our independent Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group. Could that be you?

  • Do you have personal or professional experience of health inequalities?
  • Are you passionate about overcoming barriers to equality & inclusion?
  • Can you share your ideas about creating a sustainable culture of inclusion?

If that’s you, please consider joining our Group.

Genomics is the future of our healthcare so it’s important we get this right!


We have co-created an ambitious and exciting Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy in partnership with patients and professionals from across the South East region, but now we need to establish an independent working group to make it happen. We are looking to recruit 12 people to join us.

Please note this is an unpaid position, but reasonable expenses will be considered. The expected time commitment is 20 hours a year including two meetings a year.

If you are interested, please express your interest here by July 25th 2023.

If you have questions, Tricia will be able to help you on

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.
