About Us

South West Thames Regional Genetics has a specialised prenatal service. This service is for women and couples with a family history of a genetic condition, or for those with abnormalities presenting during a pregnancy.

The team at the South West Thames Regional Genetics Service work closely with patients alongside their local midwives and the Fetal Medicine Unit at St George’s Hospital to provide comprehensive care.

Prenatal enquiries and referrals can be directed to:

prenatal.genetics@stgeorges.nhs.uk or 020 8275 5335.

Given the urgent nature of the prenatal setting, referrals by post are strongly discouraged.

The referral template can be found at the link. Referrers are kindly requested to include any relevant results (eg. ultrasound reports, genetic test results).
