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, potentially saving you money if a test is not found to be necessary. Genetic testing can also be a stressful process and lead to anxiety in some individuals. The consultation will determine whether you are psychologically prepared for testing and avoid any potentially harmful side effects.

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, should a genetic mutation be found. 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, which could lead to unnecessary surgery or treatment. Equally, they ensure variants that may be clinically relevant are not ignored.
