» Cancer Genetics open day

Thanks to our very own Rachel Iredale and her colleagues at the All Wales Medical Genetics Service for the opportunity to attend the Cancer Genetics Open Day on Saturday. The event coincided with the 60th Birthday of the NHS and everyone who has had contact with the cancer genetics service in Wales received an invite. Despite the rain (and boy did it throw it down at times) the day was a great success with I’m told, more than 180 attending. In addition to presentations there were a number of stands providing information about the work of AWMGS and others organisations including Tenovus, Macmillan, Maggie’s Centres, Wales Gene Park and of course our very own Telling Stories. Certainly the response we had to our work continues to be very positive with those attending adamant that doctors and nurses working outside the specialty also need to know about genetics. Without comprehension of the basic principles, individuals will not get referred and other, at risk family members may not be identified. There is a second event in North Wales on 15 November. Information is available here
