Preparing primary and community care for genomics

Published: 23 July, 2019

As the gateway to the NHS, primary care practitioners are vital to the early identification of genomics issues and to ensuring appropriate management and quality of care – often throughout a person’s lifetime.

The Genomics Education Programme has recognised the importance of genomics in primary care, and has developed a suite of resources on its website.

Educational resources are also highlighted in a new report from NIHR Clinical Research Network and Royal College of General Practitioners, Preparing primary and community care in the NHS for genomic research,which contains recommendations to promote genomic research in primary and community care. The report recognises the  need for educational resources for primary care staff involved in genomic research and aim to develop a genomics toolkit, and targeted disease summaries which form part of a ‘reactive’ suite of educational resources.
