Genetics

GeneticsOur specialist service diagnoses genetic disorders that affect all ages and body systems. We help people who: 

  • are worried that a particular condition or disease in their family may affect them or their children
  • have a genetic condition and need specialist advice
  • have children with medical or learning difficulties and want to know if there are genetic factors involved
  • are expecting a baby and want to discuss an abnormal test result and find out what options are available.

Our genetic counsellors provide patients with the information and support they need to make informed decisions about their own future.

We also work with other services to provide specialist clinics for various conditions, including inherited cardiac conditions, eye genetics, endocrine disorders, neurogenetics, von Hippel Lindau disease, orthopaedic conditions and metabolic bone disease.
