The 16 December 2015 marks one year since the designation of the South West NHS Genomic Medicine Centre.
During our first year we have made good progress toward achieving our local target and contributing to the national programme. We look forward to working with our Local Delivery Partners in 2016 to help ensure that as many eligible patients as possible across the region are able to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project.
Today, we are also able to announce that two new Genomics Medicine Centres have been announced. Yorkshire and the Humber and West of England are the latest NHS Genomic Medicine Centres to be added to the 11 centres already up and running. They are expected to start their work in February next year.
These two new centres will help to push the 100,000 Genomes project forward and look forward to working together to ensure that the programme is a success.
You can read more about this in Genomics England’s official announcement.
