NHS Genomic Medicine Centres

13 Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs) have been established by NHS England. These centres are key to delivering the 100,000 Genomes Project.

The GMCs have a track-record of providing excellence in genomic services. Eligible patients who are interested in getting involved will be referred to GMCs by their clinicians. If you are interested in taking part, please read the taking part page for more details.
