Newsletters, annual reports...
The 100,000 genomes project will transform the way patients with rare disease or cancer are diagnosed and treated. Run from 13 sites across the country, collectively the project will sequence and analyse 100,000 genomes from 70,000 patients in order to speed up diagnosis and where possible inform treatment choices and improve patient outcomes.
This is a great opportunity to come together with other healthcare professionals and share in the national and regional aims of the 100,000 Genomes Project.
This event will reflect on the insights and experiences so far and explore what is being achieved in improving the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and rare diseases.
Aimed towards healthcare professionals this event is also open to the public.

Further to the successful take up of a suite of WebEx during March in which they shared the zero cost, procurement and reimbursement model NHSE would like to offer some further WebEx dates for anyone that was unable to attend. To this end they will run a number of one hour WebEx Events during May, hosted by Mr Robert Chesters,
Innovation and Research Unit, NHS England. Rob will discuss:
We do hope you can attend one of these sessions as we firmly believe this is an opportunity to understand the uniqueness of this tariff model which will offer a streamlined route to reimbursement without the need for multiple price negotiations and will cut the difficulties quite often experienced by clinicians in uptake and spread.
