This infographic provides a summary of the different types of genomic results that may arise from genomic testing via the NHS Genomic Medicine Service (GMS), what these results mean, and the implications for the patient and their family. You may find this useful as a guide to support your practice.

The infographic was developed to accompany our short online course, Discussing Diagnostic Germline Genomic Tests. This forms part of our collection of courses for healthcare professions, on Facilitating Genomic Testing.

You can also find further information about genomic testing in our GMS hub.

An accessible version of this infographic is available in Word format.
