Cancer Genetics, developed by the Clinical Genetics team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust with technology company UBQO, uses personal, family and medical history to assess a person’s risk of inherited cancer.
Healthcare professionals will use the app to assess a person’s risk and if necessary, refer them directly to specialist cancer genetics services. This means quicker access to genetic counselling and testing, cancer surveillance, and preventative surgery. If the app finds a person is not at risk, they and their family can be instantly reassured.
Cancer Genetics was funded through Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity’s Cancer Funds and was developed by UBQO Ltd.
