NHS England is currently developing a Service Specification for NHS Clinical Genomic Services (NHS CGSs). On September 01, 2022, draft Service Specification and supporting documents were published for consultation.
The Clinical Genomic Services (previously called Clinical Genetics) aims to provide a comprehensive service for diagnosing, managing, and supporting people with complex, rare and/or inherited, often undiagnosed, genetic conditions (including those at risk of hereditary cancers) and malformation syndromes.
The seventeen regional Clinical Genomic Services across England will be embedded within the national NHS Genomic Medicine Service (NHS GMS) together with seven NHS Genomic Laboratory Hubs (NHS GLHs) responsible for the delivery and performance of the genomic testing within their geographical region and seven NHS GMS Alliances which are aligned to the NHS GLH geographical footprints.
The deadline for comments submission is September 30, 2022.
