Genetic counsellors assist individuals, couples and families to understand complex genetic information and its consequences for themselves and their future children.
Our genetic counsellors provide education and psychosocial support to enhance understanding, decision making and coping with genetic risks. We discuss all available options with utmost confidentiality and respect of our patient’s values and beliefs.
We provide information about genetic tests and related procedures and make relevant referrals, where appropriate.
Our staff also serve as a central resource of information about genetic conditions for patients and other healthcare providers.
