Mainstreaming Genomic Medicine: Return of Results

March 4 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on March 4 2022 at 4:00 PM

Part of an online series of interactive workshops organised by the team at North Thames GMSA/GLH, with the aim to provide healthcare professionals the opportunities to engage and ask questions and find out what further information and support is available.

Return of Results 

This session will cover: types of germline genomic test results, how to read a genetic test report, implications of results to patients and families.

Thu 10th Feb 2022 16.00-17.00 or Wed 4th Mar 2022 16.00-17.00

 

To book your place and if you have any questions, would like further information or to discuss individual needs, please contact the Programme Lead Corrine Trim on corinnetrim@nhs.net.

 

The programme has been developed in the line with the HEE GEP competency framework to facilitate the consent conversation for genomic testing and the competency framework for communicating germline genomic results.

Critical incident affecting genomics tests from Viapath

We have been experiencing issues with the IT systems at our Hub laboratory based at Guy’s Hospital as a result of recent extreme weather. We have been working hard to fix these issues and minimise the impact on our services. Please be aware that as a result of this critical incident you may experience some delays to receiving results and some test reports may look different. 

Hello! Welcome to the South East GLH website. The site is not fully supported in older versions of Internet Explorer. To get the best experience, we recommend that you use Google Chrome or Firefox to browse the site.

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.
