  • Implementing a National Genomic Medicine Service for the NHS: building on the legacy of the 100,000 Genomes Project

NHS England is currently looking at embedding personalised medicine into mainstream healthcare, so that clinicians from oncology and other mainstream medical specialties outside clinical genetics can access and use genomic testing, but there is still a long way to go before access to genomic medicine becomes a reality for all patients. So what needs to happen now and what will be the benefits for patients in decades to come?

A joint event by the All-Party Parliamentary Health Group and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Personalised Medicine, group members and invited guests will learn about the ground-breaking subject of genomic medicine from a distinguished line up of speakers.

Speakers

  • Prof Sue Hill, NHS Chief Scientific Officer for England
  • Prof Lyn Chitty, Professor of Genetics and Fetal Medicine, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health
  • Dr Jean Abraham, Consultant Medical Onvologist, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Chair: Helen Whately, MP
