Join Australian Genomics’ DNA dialogue seminar, “From cradle to grave: systemic adoption of genomics in a national health service”, featuring Dr Gemma Chandratillake from NHS East Genomics in the UK.
The NHS Genomic Medicine Service launched in England in 2018 aims to embed genomics throughout the health service from primary and community care to specialist and tertiary care, with a focus on equity of access for the country’s diverse population of 55 million. The ambition, challenges and opportunities in delivering genomic medicine at scale will be presented.
