Review of Commissioning Arrangements for Genetic Services and Strategic Recommendations

Written by Jacqui Hoyle on 2 May 2012

The UKGTN Steering Group endorsed this report when they met in March 2011. 

In light of the findings of the survey of SCGs and the analysis of the data, the executive summary to the report proposes a strategy for commissioning genetics.

The report outlines a suggested commissioning specification for specialised genetics services and recognises that non genetic clinicians are increasingly using genetic testing for diagnostic purposes which will be commissioned by PCTs/Clinical Commissioning Groups.
