East Genomic Laboratory (East GLH) coordinates genetic and genomic testing for the East of England and East Midlands. Tests are aligned to the National Genomic Test Directories for Rare and Inherited Disease, and Cancer.
Rare and inherited diseases
Read about the range of tests for those with rare and inherited diseases.
Cancer (solid tumour)
We are currently expanding our portfolio of tests for cancer as we work towards full implementation of the National Test Directory for Cancer.
We provide molecular genetic and cytogenetic testing for the diagnosis and follow up of haematological malignancies.
We are continually expanding our tests to help determine effective treatment for patients.
Turn around times
The turn around times for Genetic/Genomic tests have been specified by NHS England.
Whole genome sequencing
WGS has been launched across all seven GLH’s to test for a range of rare disease, solid tumour and haematological malignancy indications.
Please ensure you follow the specific sample requirements for the test you need.
Transport of samples
Please read our instructions on the transport of samples.
Our referral forms
This page contains the relevant referral forms you will need.
We use a range of assays to carry out the tests listed in the National Test Directories.
Patient choice and consent
An appropriate discussion of genomic testing must take place before testing is requested.
