Learn about the Homologous Recombination Deficiency service

Information about our learning webinar on the Homologous Recombination Deficiency service

NICE guidelines state that some patients with ovarian, breast & prostate cancer should receive genomic testing for Homologous Recombination Deficiency to identify for PARP inhibitors treatment eligibility.

The South East Genomic Medicine Service has launched a new Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) service for all NHS colleagues working within cancer across the South East.

Join our free online webinar on January 26th from midday – 1pm to find out more, and understand how to access testing for your patients.

Listen to the following experts

  • Prof Agnieszka Michael MRCP PhD, medical oncology consultant at the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dr Katya Mokretar DipRCPath PhD, clinical scientist at the Cancer Genetics lab at South East Genomic Medicine Service
  • Sébastien Sauvage, scientist at OncoDNA

They’ll be sharing their knowledge and answering questions. Highlights include:

  • Gain an understanding of the HRD send-away service and its specific requirements.
  • Understand the HRD reports and how they differ to what was received previously.
  • Open table discussion around all aspects of the new service.

Everyone is welcome. This will be particularly useful for anyone working with ovarian cancer patients including oncologists, cancer nurses histopathologists, and scientists.

Book your place here.

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.
