Clinical Genetics Service

South East Scotland Genetic Service

The Genetic Service is based at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. The service moved in May 2009: Our new building is on Porterfield Road by the taxi rank. It is next to the main Out Patients Department building and across the car park and grassed area from our former home in the MMC. Entry is through the blue door at the Crewe Road end.

We run a number of general genetic clinics across Lothian, Borders and Fife. Several specialist clinics including Neurogenetics, Marfan Syndrome and Endocrine Genetics, are held in Edinburgh. These pages provide basic information about the South East Scotland Genetic Service including the variety of genetic disorders we assess and the services we offer. Information is divided into sections aimed at patients, health professionals and students, but all of the content is freely available.

We welcome feedback on this site, or enquiries on any aspect of our services.

The telephone number for all enquiries is: 0131 537 1116.
