Clinical Genetics

Clinical Genetics is a medical discipline specialising in the diagnosis and management of conditions with a known or probable genetic origin. Genetic disorders last an entire lifetime and may affect multiple family members across generations. Families often require both specialist diagnosis and health management.

We provide specialist, family-centred services for:

  • Diagnostic assessment
  • Current and accurate medical information
  • Risk estimation for pregnancies and the extended family
  • Genetic counselling
  • Management and support to individual patients of any age

We work closely with our laboratory colleagues from the West Midlands Regional Genetics Service and clinical colleagues from a variety of medical specialties across the West Midlands region.

Our clinical teams comprise of Consultants, Registrar’s, Genetic Counsellors, and Specialist Nurses and we are proud to embody our Trust values in everything we do.
