If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Making a referral to clinical genetics

Outpatient only service:

By referral - from GP, secondary and tertiary care.

Clinical referrals are accepted from GPs (via EBS or partial 'choose and book' accepted), consultants, associate specialists, cancer family history clinics, antenatal services and other relevant health professionals such as health visitors.

All referrals should be made to the Clinical Genetics Service at Nottingham City Hospital. If the referral is urgent, such as obstetric cases, please telephone with the referral or email a referral letter to allow earliest possible intervention. All referrals are reviewed on a daily basis by an experienced clinician.  Please also see our main page which lists details of specialist and regional clinics and how to refer.

For all referrals please include as much relevant information as possible, including contact details of your patient and names of significant relatives if known. It is particularly helpful to us to have a daytime telephone number. Prior to making any referrals please ensure that you have discussed this with the patient and that they wish to be seen.

If you have any questions regarding whether to refer a patient or want to discuss any details, please do not hesitate to contact us on: 0115 962 7728. There is always a designated member of the clinical team available for telephone enquiries.
