Recruitment Has Ended

Recruitment to the 100,000 Genomes Project in the West Midlands finished in 2018. Since then, the team has worked to return results to all participants. This continued until March 2020, when the covid-19 pandemic led to prioritisation of coronavirus testing, resulting in a delay to any outstanding results. Going forwards, a Genomic Medicine Service Alliance will be established to bring genomics into routine NHS care.
