As Covid-19 is affecting us all in so many ways, routine face to face consultations are now on hold. In exceptional circumstances patients can be seen in clinic. However, we are very happy to conduct virtual consultations via Skype, Zoom or phone for both new and follow-up patients. Please call 07970 886663 or email for an appointment and we can see you within a matter of days.
It may be helpful to note that the major insurance companies are supporting initiatives such as this but if in doubt please consult them.

The International Gene Clinic is a paediatric and adult diagnostic and investigation clinic for patients

Our aim is to advise on the diagnosis, follow-up, treatment, risk assessment, research and reproductive options so that patients and families are better informed in order that everyone can live and reproduce as normally as possible.
