Charities slam genetic testing in UK:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Genetic testing and counselling on offer across the UK varies in quantity, quality and accessibility for patients. A survey carried out by the Genetics Interest Group (GIG), which represents more than 100 charities and self-help groups that deal with inherited problems, blames insufficient funding for the poor service. One health authority did not even know that a local genetics service existed until approached by GIG. The group suggests that a section within the Department of Health takes on responsibility for genetic services, and that spending be increased by 50% on the clinical side, and 30% on the laboratory side (New Scientist, 8th July).
