SE Genomics Spring Festival 2022

March 31 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Celebrating the first year of the South East Genomic Medicine Service Alliance through a series of virtual Mini-Festivals.

About this event

We would like to invite you to our South East Genomic Service Medicine Alliance virtual Spring Festival to celebrate our first years progress.

This is the first of a series of events we are planning for the Alliance. The Alliance is a collective of providers working in partnership to strategically and systematically embed genomic medicine for the South East. We want to share our learning and celebrate our achievements with you, together with signposting you to where you can get more information about our work and opportunities to get involved.

For this first event we will be providing an overview of what the Alliance is all about, together with key note speakers giving an overview of the progress that has been made in Cardiology, Renal and Neurology transformation projects, and introducing our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy.

The event is open to all our staff, patients and public to attend and will take place via MS Teams.

Registration is now live, please click the link below to register:

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.
