The United Kingdom has an internationally recognised excellence in the provision of clinical genetics and genomics services for patients.
NHS services include both clinical consultations and laboratory investigations. There is an extensive network of clinics specialising in the diagnosis and management of genetic conditions, based in regional centres (shown in red on the map). Many centres also hold clinics in local communities.
The laboratory services are currently undergoing reorganisation, so the information below shows where clinics are currently based.
Referral to a genetics clinic is usually through a GP or hospital specialist.
