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 seven 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.

Who gets referred?

Clinical Genetics is a service for individuals and families who are concerned about a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of a genetic condition. 

The Nottingham Clinical Genetics Service covers the majority of the Trent region (a population of around 2.2 million) and clinics are currently held in several of the district hospitals in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire as well as in Nottingham.

You will need to be referred to the Clinical Genetics Service by your family doctor (GP), hospital specialist or any other relevant health professional such as your midwife or health visitor.

If you have problems getting referred to the service but think it would be appropriate you can contact us to discuss your specific situation.

Tel: 0115 962 7728

Sometimes your GP may refer you to the service using the 'Choose and Book' system. Your GP will give you a unique booking reference number (UBRN) and the telephone number for the Clinical Genetics Service. You will need to ring in with this reference in order to take your referral forward.
