Showcase of Genomics
across North Thames

Genomic medicine is coming into every-day-practice for multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals across the NHS, improving how we diagnose and treat patients of all ages with cancer and rare or inherited diseases.

In our one day showcase you can find out how genomic medicine is changing healthcare in North London, Essex and Hertfordshire, and hear about the new pathways now in place across many services.

The full programme will be released soon and will cover;

  • The role of whole genome sequencing (WGS) in paediatric cancers and rare diseases
  • Evaluations of new and transformative services such as fetal exome sequencing and non-invasive prenatal diagnosis
  • Information on key changes to cancer pathways which have allowed more targeted management plans.

Please note this event is only for healthcare professionals working in the North Thames region – this includes North East, Central and West London, Hertfordshire (Dacorum, Hertsmere, St Albans, Watford and Three Rivers) and Essex (Basildon, Brentwood, Mid Essex, South East Essex and Thurrock).
