Covid-19 Update – Virtual Screening with the Jnetics Clinic

We are continuing to offer carrier screening services via our Jnetics clinic.
All clinic appointments are now taking place virtually. Appointments can be booked using the regular method here. After registration, participants will receive a screening pack in the post, including a saliva kit and other necessary screening items. Appointments will take place via video consultation –  the Jnetics genetic counsellor will call at the scheduled time. During the call, participants will receive instructions about providing the saliva sample and returning it to us.

The GENEius Programme is a pioneering education and screening initiative.

Jnetics is a registered charity dedicated to improving the prevention and management of Jewish genetic disorders in the UK.

We focus on genetic conditions that, though not exclusively Jewish, are of particular relevance to people of Jewish ancestry.

Our core activities include:

– awareness-raising
– signposting to the best available information, services and support
– providing carrier screening for 9 of the most severe recessive Jewish genetic disorders.
