Referrals are triaged by the Clinical Genetics team. Depending on the reason for referral and family history, a genetic assessment may be completed by letter, or by telephone contact or by appointment.
Please note: not all referrals will be offered an appointment with Clinical Genetics.

Genetic Clinics are held in various locations (see below). Some of the more specialist clinics are only held in one location.
