In 2021, Health Education England’s Genomics Education invited medical professionals across the UK to complete a survey, ‘Genomics in your practice: a health and social care survey’.

The survey was designed to identify the learning needs and preferences of the UK medical workforce around genomics; in particular, to:

  • assess if and how medics currently use genomics;
  • measure self-perceived confidence in their genomics knowledge and skills;
  • evaluate engagement with genomics education and training;
  • understand their intention to use genomics in future practice; and
  • identify future education and training requirements.

This report summarises the results of the survey.
