100,000 Genomes Project Eligibility Wheels

13th December 2016

New reference guides to identify patients / participants eligible to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project

The GEP, in collaboration with University Hospitals Leicester, have developed a series of easy reference tools to identify patients/participants eligible to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project. Aimed at any staff recruiting patients within GMCs or local delivery partners, the wheels have been developed in-line with the most recent changes to the Project’s eligibility criteria (July 2016).

The eligibility wheels have brought together conditions that would be seen by specific physicians in a clinical setting.

The first series of wheels to be delivered feature:

  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Ciliopathies
  • Rheumatological disorders
  • Skeletal disorders

Additional sets of wheels, covering a variety of conditions, will be delivered monthly until March 2017. You can view the first ten wheels on our genomics education programme website.
