We need help from healthcare professionals in the East of England to identify suitable patients.
If you are a specialist who wishes to recruit one of your patients to the Rare Diseases 100,000 Genomes Project you will need to:
- Confirm if the patient is eligible using the eligibility criteria.
- Refer your patient to your local EEGMC centre.
- Agree to complete the clinical details of the patient within six weeks of the patient providing a blood sample. A phenotyping proforma will be provided by Genomics England specific to each disease.
- Feed back results when they become available, to the families and refer families to specialist care where appropriate in the light of results.
If you are a specialist who wishes to recruit one of your patients to the Cancer 100,000 Genomes Project in the East of England please get in touch with your local Genomic Medicine Centre. Contact details for Cambridge, Leicester, Nottingham and Norwich can be found here. Or If you want to know how the project started just click on the link to the 100,000 Project.
