Did anyone see Adam Wishart's documentary about genetic testing during the week? There was an interesting piece about FH being one of the conditions where testing makes a huge and cost effective difference. The other condition was sickle cell anaemia where sufferers seem to get an even rawer deal.
Prof. Steve Humphries described the situation in England as a "scandal" with 100,000 people undiagnosed.
I do not understand why it is so difficult to get genetic testing in England when Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can do it. Why do some clinics in England have a budget for it and others don't ? Who makes those sort of decisions?
Sorry, this should have gone in the questions slot!
