The WRGL is part of the West Midlands, Oxford and Wessex Genomics Laboratory Hub and is based at Salisbury District Hospital. We provide an accredited genetics and genomics service for a core population of 3 million in the South Central (formerly Wessex) region of England, as well as specialist testing for other centres. We accept samples referred by health care professionals from the UK or abroad, and offer high-quality testing, interpretation and reporting for a wide range of genetic conditions. The laboratory is ISO15189 accredited and is directed by Professor Nick Cross MA PhD FRCPath.
We work in conjunction with the Wessex Clinical Genetics Service (WCGS) based at Princess Anne Hospital, Southampton and undertake basic and applied research as part of the University of Southampton.
