Targeted genetic testing of family traits and cancer genes has come a long way. With our guidance, you can find out if you are at risk of cancer and heart disease, and what the results mean for you and your family.

At Private GP Services, we are delighted to be able to offer this exciting development in health screening, using genetic analysis to assess your risk of heart disease and the most commonly-occurring cancers. This is focused screening with us and a consultant clinical geneticist.

We have partnered with London-based consultant geneticists, who can offer pre-test and post-test counselling. This is very important to your understanding of the impact of any positive results and how this might affect you and other family members.

Before your appointment you will be sent a family history form. We ask you to complete this ahead of your first appointment.
