The SWGLH works with the Genomics Unit in NHS England, and as of February 2021 the SWGLH is aligned with the activity of the South West Genomics Medicine Service Alliance (SWGMSA), to ensure that genomic laboratory services are aligned with national policy and with the needs of the SW population.

Oversight and governance of the SWGLH and the SWGMSA  are currently provided by a Partnership Board which meets regularly and is accountable to an oversight board consisting of the CEOs of the acute Trusts in the NHS and onward to NHS England and the Genomic Unit.
