Requesting reanalysis of existing data
For patients who have already had a WGS test under the National Genomic Test Directory (NGTD), reanalysis of a new gene panel or applying the latest version of the previous panel is only available where there is a change in clinical circumstances to justify the test. This would include a significant change in the patient’s disorder, potential new treatment or clinical management applicable or a new pregnancy which might be impacted by testing. There also needs to be a significant expectation that the re-analysis will provide a diagnosis which was not made by the original test.
For cases that satisfy those requirements, please complete the form below:
and send to: SWGLHexports@nbt.nhs.uk
