Our partners

Oxford NHS Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC) is a partnership of seven NHS trusts working across our region.

Oxford GMC works with, and is supported by, other local partners, including:

Three key national partners work with NHS GMCs to deliver the 100,000 Genomes Project:

NHS England

NHS England developed local capabilities and patient-focused pathways for genomic medicine in the health service through the 13 NHS Genomic Medicine Centres, of which Oxford was one. Now, NHS England are working to establish a new genomic medicine service in the NHS built on the foundations laid by the project.

Genomics England

Genomics England is a company owned and established by the Department of Health to deliver the 100,000 Genomes Project. It coordinated the sequencing for the project and is still active in managing data interpretation, contracts with service providers, and driving the research aims of the project through universities and commercial partners. Genomics England also holds responsibility for the secure storage and protection of personal data in accordance with NHS policy and UK law.

Health Education England

Health Education England works closely with Genomic Medicine Centres to identify training requirements for genomics across the breadth of healthcare professionals and develop training programmes locally and nationally.
