Virtual educational meeting: NTRK gene fusion testing

November 3 2021 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

The NHS Genomic Medicine Service and NTRK gene fusion testing and treatment pathways

The South East Genomic Laboratory Hub is delighted to host this educational meeting and welcomes healthcare professional attendees from our regional cancer clinical teams.

Aims: To explore the role of the NHS genomic medicines service in delivering cancer genomic testing via the regional GLH network and to examine the clinical testing and treatment landscape associated with managing patients with NTRK gene-fusions.

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.
