EPPiGen’s response to NHS Long Term Plan

The NHS Long-Term plan was published this week, and we were delighted to see the prominence given to genomics. The plan details ambitions for the NHS to become ‘the first national health care system to offer whole genome sequencing as part of routine care’. The immediate focus of this will be on children with cancer, all of whom will receive whole genome sequencing ‘to enable more comprehensive and precise diagnosis, and access to more personalised treatments’. We are pleased that this commitment will help to keep the UK at the forefront of clinical genomics, and our national health service, provides a great vehicle for large scale introduction of these innovative technologies into clinical practice.
