Genomics Clinical Reference Group Chair and Clinical Members

NHS England is recruiting to a number of roles supporting the direct commissioning of clinical services.

A new Genomics Clinical Reference Group is being formed to support implementation of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service (GMS), and through its multi-professional, and patient and public representation, will:

  • Advise on clinical policy and strategy for genomics, including implementation of Long-Term Plan commitments and future development of the NHS GMS;
  • Oversee a clear, transparent process for annual review of the National Genomic Test Directory; and
  • Support activities to raise awareness and embedding genomics across all clinical specialities.

We are recruiting a Chair with a national or international reputation in genomics. CRG Chairs usually have a sessional reimbursement at 1 PA a week. However, given the scope of the CRG additional sessional reimbursement may be considered.

Members will have genomic expertise in a range of medical specialities including:

  • Clinical genetics and genetic counselling;
  • Cancer, covering solid tumour, haematological malignancies and paediatric cancer;
  • Primary care;
  • Rare and inherited disease; and
  • Other specialities such as cardiology, reproductive medicine, neurology, ophthalmology and renal disease.

Additional healthcare membership will come from clinical scientists with expertise in rare and inherited disease and cancer, and those with genomic expertise in nursing and public health. Member posts are non-remunerated.

For more information and how to apply please contact:

Role discussion on Genomics with Professor Dame Sue Hill, Chief Scientific Officer, SRO for Genomics, NHS England may be arranged.

Closing date: Midnight on the 26th October 2019.
