Chief Scientific Officer's Conference

Register here for the 2020 Chief Scientific Officer’s Annual Conference.

The Conference will showcase how Healthcare Science will deliver the commitments of the long term plan and the people plan through WorkingDifferently, the theme of the conference. The format will be a mix of plenary sessions, interactive panel discussions and workshops all delivered by experts in their field. Alongside this, networking opportunities, a poster competition and the presentation of the 2020 Healthcare Science Awards will provide the chance to learn from and inspire others.

Registration for this free, two-day event is available to NHS Healthcare Scientists on a first come, first serve basis. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Delegates are also welcome to join the Healthcare Science Awards ceremony that will take place directly after the conference on the evening of 17 March 2020.

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.
