Introducing the North East and Yorkshire NHS Genomic Medicine Service
We work with NHS Trusts and other partners to embed genomics into routine clinical care, delivering faster and more accurate diagnoses, personalised treatment, and prevention through early detection.
Bringing genomic medicine into everyday healthcare
The North East and Yorkshire NHS Genomic Medicine Service (GMS) brings together regional Clinical Partners, the Genomic Laboratory Hub (GLH) and the Genomic Medicine Service Alliance (GMSA) – all working together to improve health and equity of access to genomic tests and treatments for patients in the region.
We have four Partner Trusts: The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Deliver genetic medicine services to patients and their families using the best available tests and treatments, including access to latest research.
