All genetic and genomic test results will be returned by the North Thames Genomic Laboratory Hub after appropriate interpretation and analysis has been completed. These reports will be returned directly to the ordering clinician, unless instructed otherwise.

 

Results for tumour tests will need to be discussed at a Genomic Tumour Advisory Board (GTAB) meeting prior to a report being issued. These meetings have been established to ensure there is appropriate expert knowledge and oversight of genomic test results and that they are managed and acted upon in a coordinated way.  These GTAB meetings will take place on a regular basis and responsible clinicians will be invited to their local meeting to review their patient’s results with the board members.
