Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

The Nottingham Clinical Genetics service have suspended all face-to-face outpatient appointments, with the exception of clinically urgent cases. This includes all appointments offered by our service at Nottingham Hospitals and at our outreach clinics in Mansfield, Grantham, Boston, Spalding, Lincoln, Spalding, Skegness and Derby.

At present, we are able to offer some patients telephone consultations where appropriate.  This may not be an option for all patients and unfortunately, some appointments may need to be cancelled or postponed.

If you have an up-coming appointment with our service and are not sure if it has been cancelled or converted to a telephone consultation please contact us directly and do not travel to the hospital.

Our team includes consultant clinical geneticists, genetics counsellors, and specialist genetics laboratory staff (clinical cytogenetics, and molecular genetics).
