Why Choose GeneHealth UK

GeneHealth UK provides comprehensive pre- and post-testing consultations to make sure that you will get the most out of the service and are supported from start to finish.

Pre-Test Counselling

GeneHealth UK provides a unique pre-test consultation with a registered genetic counsellor to give you all the information you need before you commit to one of our genetic tests. Your counsellor will advise you on which genetic test, if any, is appropriate for you and ensure that the correct genes are analysed. Genetic testing can also be a stressful process and lead to anxiety in some individuals. The consultation will help prepare you psychologically for testing and ensure you are aware of the implications of results. 

Post-Test counselling

After you receive your results, GeneHealth UK will provide clear personalised medical management guidelines and any onward referrals if necessary. Advice will also be provided concerning screening of relatives. Unlike other test providers, GeneHealth UK offers personalised guidelines and explanation even if results are negative, as there may still be a significant risk of cancer. Our clear and informative management guidelines protect against anyone mistakenly believing they have a cancer-causing mutation (when in reality they have a variant), which could lead to unnecessary surgery or treatment. Equally, they ensure variants that may be clinically relevant are not ignored.

*A variant of unknown significance (VUS) is a genetic change that has been identified through genetic testing but has an unclear association with disease risk. Some variants may cause cancer, but the majority do not. A high VUS rate can lead to confusion and unnecessary worry.

Individuals with a family history of cancer often question:

Am I at risk?
