Genetic Counselling

This is provided by one of our genetic counsellors, who are health professionals with postgraduate degrees and experience in the areas of medical genetics and counselling.

Prior to and during your appointment information about your medical and family history will be collected. The genetic counsellor will use this information to provide a risk assessment on whether you could have an inherited condition that causes a higher than usual risk for cancer.

They may also discuss the appropriateness, pros and cons of and types of genetic tests, along with your expectations and potential outcomes.
