How can I be referred?

If there is a confirmed or suspected genetic condition in you or your family (or your partner if you are pregnant or considering a pregnancy), you may wish to request a referral to Genetics.

If you or a family member has been seen in a genetics centre before, please make sure you tell your referrer. Prior to an appointment, it is helpful for us to know the name, date of birth, genetics reference number and where they were seen, if possible.

You may be referred to us if you:

  • Have or are at risk of a genetic condition yourself
  • Have a child with a suspected or confirmed genetic condition
  • Are a carrier or potential carrier of a genetic condition
  • Have a family history of a genetic condition
  • Are pregnant with a family history of a genetic condition
  • Have had unexpected changes found on a scan or test during pregnancy
  • Want to discuss your reproductive options if there is a genetic condition in the family
