RCPCH Conference 2022

June 28

We are thrilled to be returning to a face-to-face conference this year. Taking place in Liverpool from 28 to 30 June, this is a great opportunity to network with colleagues once again, hear from leading voices and catch up on the latest innovations in child health at a wide range of specialty sessions.

As the largest paediatric event of its kind in the UK, RCPCH Conference brings together more than 1,500 visitors to network and discover the latest innovations in child health.

As a commercial or charitable organisation in child health, meet the paediatric community and get an insight into their current challenges and needs.

Critical incident affecting genomics tests from Viapath

The issues with our IT systems have now been resolved  and our laboratory is processing all tests and referrals sent to us.

Please be aware that as normal services resume you may experience some delays to receiving results and the reports may look different.

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.
