The UK is recognised worldwide as a leader in genomics and the unique structure of the NHS allows it to deliver these advances at scale and pace for patient benefit.
Our expertise and emphasis on cross-specialty issues makes us ideal to look at how and when to embed genomics into education, training and clinical practice.
We have been commissioned by NHS England to convene a group of College Genomic Clinical Leads that will be instrumental in refining and prioritising various aspects of their genomic medicine programme. The work will sit across the spectrum of medicine and healthcare to ensure that full benefits are realised while avoiding overdiagnosis or any potential harm. We will help to shape the conversation with the GMC and other stakeholders.
The committee is jointly chaired by Professor Carrie MacEwen from the Academy and Professor Sue Hill, the NHS Chief Scientific Officer for England. The work is managed by Rose Jarvis.
