Non-Cancer tests

Please select the specialty relating to the test you would like to order, if you cannot see the specialty you need please select ‘Other Rare and Inherited disorders’. Tests that are performed by labs in the SE GLH region have specific links shown here. Tests which we send out to other specialist centres around the country are not listed individually.

Whole Genome Sequencing

Your patient may be eligible for Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) which will require a separate form. This WGS testing will be performed in parallel to other routine genomic tests that are part of standard care.

  • R89 Ultra-rare and atypical monogenic disorders
  • R27 Congenital malformation and dysmorphism syndromes
  • R29 Intellectual disability 
  • R69 Hypotonic infant
  • R104 Skeletal dysplasia
  • R100 Rare syndromic craniosynostosis or isolated multisuture synostosis
  • R143 Neonatal diabetes
  • R98 Likely inborn error of metabolism
  • R54 Hereditary ataxia with onset in adulthood
  • R55 Hereditary ataxia with onset in childhood
  • R59 Early onset or syndromic epilepsy
  • R61 Childhood onset hereditary spastic paraplegia
  • R83 Arthrogryposis
  • R381 Other rare neuromuscular disorders
  • R84 Cerebellar anomalies
  • R85 Holoprosencephaly - NOT chromosomal
  • R86 Hydrocephalus
  • R87 Cerebral malformation
  • R88 Severe microcephaly
  • R109 Childhood onset leukodystrophy
  • R193 Cystic renal disease

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.

WGS for Rare Disease

At the moment (April 2021) Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) for patients is available to a limited number of clinicians, for a limited number of clinical indications. Please do not request WGS, but please contact us to discuss your case with one of our clinical team. 

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.
