NHS SW GMS Alliances 

The establishment of  NHS SW GMS Alliance across England  will help embed genomics into routine care locally. these will bring together the vital multi-disciplinary clinical leadership and other operational and digital functions that are necessary to make this possible.

The GMS Alliances will review equity of access for patients , support the establishment of testing pathways for cancer and rare diseases, help enable clinicians to request genomic tests, introduce new models of care that support early access to genomic testing and understand where there are areas of unmet need.

If you would like more information on your regional NHS GMS Alliance and their contact details please email england.genomics@nhs.net.
