What is the inquiry aboutThis inquiry examines the Chief Medical Officer's (Dame Sally Davies) call in her latest annual report, ‘Generation Genome’, for mainstreaming genomic medicine in the NHS within 5 years. The Committee is inviting written evidence on the CMO’s recommendations, including observations on how any barriers to greater integration of genomic therapies in the NHS could be overcome, and how such barriers may differ across the devolved nations.
