About the National Genomic Test Directories
The East Midlands & East of England Genomic Laboratory Hub delivers genetic and genomic testing in line with the National Genomic Test Directories.
The Directories –one for cancer and one for rare and inherited conditions –specify which genomic tests are commissioned by the NHS in England, the technology by which the tests are available, and the patients who are eligible to access each test. The National Genomic Test Directories can be accessed here.
