The genomic revolution: A practical guide to what you can’t afford not to know – Part 2

December 10 2020 @ 5:00 PM - 6:05 PM

The genomic revolution 3 webinar- Royal Society of Medicine


In this exciting 3-part webinar, representatives from NHS England will give an up to date outline of the changes in genomic infrastructure which will transform the provision of genomic testing in the NHS.

In this second webinar, delegates will explore how to approach genomic testing with patients and discuss when and how to organise a genetic test for your patient.

During this webinar you will:

  • Think about how to prepare yourself to discuss genomic tests with your patients
  • Consider how to prepare patients for a genomic test.
  • Gain insight into how patients and their families are impacted by genomic results.


A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Please visit the Royal Society of Medicine website for more information and to purchase a ticket.

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.
