"This package of education tools and resources has been produced by genomic experts for the Cheshire and Merseyside region. It has been created to support healthcare professionals offering genomic testing to patients with breast cancer"

This education package is primarily for breast and oncology teams in the Cheshire and Merseyside region. On completion, clinicians should be able to assess why genomic testing is available, who is eligible, what it could show and how to arrange it.

Support for clinicians is available via the on call genetic counsellor/geneticist via and we aim to hold Teams MDT meetings approx. 4 times a year (details will be added to this site).
