Clinical Genetics is a medical discipline specialising in the diagnosis and management of conditions with a known or probable genetic basis, for which genomic discoveries are revolutionising care. Genetic disorders occur across the whole lifespan and may affect multiple family members and generations. Families often require both specialist diagnosis and health management.
Genomic Medicine (Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine; MCGM) is an integrated and multidisciplinary facility which brings together NHS patient services and genomic researchers. It is one of the UK’s largest genetics centres with in excess of 250 staff, enabling us to offer a wide range of routine and specialist genomic services and to use knowledge from research discoveries to improve clinical care.
