Regional genetics clinics

 

Our services extend to regional genetics clinics throughout the South East, although these may have longer waiting times than our clinics at Guy's Hospital. Some of the clinics are only suitable for adults and others only for children. If one of the clinics below would be more suitable for your patient, please send a written referral to the clinical genetics service at Guy's

You can also see the list of clinics we hold at Guy's, St Thomas' or the Evelina London Children's Hospital.
