Autumn Festival 2023

October 19 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

We’re hosting an online Festival about Genomics and Paediatrics and I hope you can join us.


It’s October 19th from 12 – 2. We’ll be discussing the latest developments in genomics & paediatrics including newborn screening, whole genome sequencing and precision medicine.


It would be great to see you. Can you please share with your colleagues and networks too? It’s so important to us that more and more clinicians at all levels get the opportunity to learn about how genomics can benefit their patients and families.

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.
