Patients & General Public

A referral from your GP to a specialist clinic (Clinical Genetics or other) is required for getting a genetic test done through the NHS to diagnose a genetic condition.

Further information and support is provided by patient umbrella organisations such as Genetic Alliance UK.


How do I get a genetic test done on the NHS?

You will need to be referred by your GP or the clinical professional that is treating you to your local Regional Genetics Centre (RGC).

Is a test for x condition available on the NHS?

In the first instance, search the UKGTN database for tests that have been evaluated by the UKGTN.  If no results, please check other databases for tests that are offered through UK, European and US laboratories.
