The Clinical Genetics department is situated on Level 2A of the Laboratory Medicine Building of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. The staff of the Clinical Genetics Department see increasing numbers of patients and their families every year for genetic counselling at general genetics clinics, cancer genetic clinics and other specialist genetic clinics.
These clinics are held within the Centre itself, at other Glasgow hospitals and at a number of community locations throughout the West of Scotland, including Kilmarnock, Wishaw, Cumbernauld, Greenock, Paisley, Ayr, Larbert and Dumfries.

You will have heard of the arrangements that are being made to prepare for the expected high demands on the NHS over the coming weeks. As part of the contingency planning to manage the COVID-19 outbreak, it has been necessary to make cancellations to a range of services. These decisions are made based on clinical assessments about what we can continue to provide and what can be rescheduled
The Clinical Genetics Clinics are under review working towards resuming a full service over the coming months. Currently we offer appointments using NHS Attend Anywhere, telephone consultations and when necessary face to face consultations. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause to you, cancelled appointments will be rescheduled as soon as is possible but we are expecting the wait for routine appointment to be around 42 weeks.
We will still be providing a service for patients with a need to be reviewed urgently. If you are pregnant, or if your query becomes urgent, please do not hesitate to contact our service on 0141 354 9201.
We know you will understand why we have had to take this action.
