Documents and Forms

Tests that are performed by specialist labs in the SE GLH region have separate forms that can be downloaded from this page and completed electronically/by hand. Please refer to the corresponding linked specialty pages for eligibility, sample requirements and further information.

Non-Cancer test request forms:

Cancer test request forms:

Consent:

All genetic testing requires consent. It is the responsibility of the referring clinician to obtain appropriate consent from the patient for genetic testing. This should be saved in local patient records and does not need to be sent with the request form.

Non-WGS Record of Discussion

Coming soon

We are still working on this page of the website and will launch soon. 

In the meantime, if you would like to request a Dermatology test please use the SE GLH Dermatology Request Form v.1.0.  

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Haemato-Oncology tests

We are still working on this page of the website and will launch soon. 

In the meantime, if you would like to request a Haem-Onc test please use the SE HMDS Request Form v.1.0. Please note that while whole genome sequencing (WGS) is an option on the form it is not available to order at this time. 

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

South East Genomics

Welcome to our new home

We have recently changed our name from the NHS London South Genomic Laboratory Hub to the NHS South East Genomic Laboratory HubWe think it better reflects the region we cover!

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.
