Current opportunities to get involved

Genomic Medicine Service – developing patient information

To support the introduction of whole genome sequencing, NHS England is developing information leaflets that will be given to people when they are invited for a whole genome sequencing test, to help them understand what this test is, why they might have one, the implications for their family and what happens to their data.
We are seeking members of the public to comment on the draft leaflets at a focus group on Tuesday 20 August 12 – 4pm at a central London venue. We value having a wide range of people working with us to get the information right for publication. Please note you do not need any knowledge of genomic testing to help us.
For further information including how to register for the event, please contact either Helen Liggett, Service Development Lead, Genomics Unit h.liggett@nhs.net or Thomas Chalk, Public Participation Manager t.chalk@nhs.net
