New animation shows how genomic education has moved into the mainstream

After the interest created around genomic medicine with the publication of the Chief Medical Officer’s Annual Report on Genomics recently, the Health Education England's Genomics Education Programme (GEP) has launched a short animation to demonstrate how the GEP is supporting health professionals to achieve Dame Sally’s “genomics dream” for the NHS.

Health Education England’s GEP is the NHS initiative to ensure its workforce has the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to remain a world leader in genomic medicine.

The animation illustrates the work the GEP is doing to educate and train staff from across all professions to gain the knowledge, skills and experience they need to embrace its extraordinary potential, and bring lasting benefits for patients.

As Dame Sally’s report highlights, there has never been a greater need for raising awareness and understanding about genomic medicine among the NHS workforce, and the GEP look forward to growing their collection of education, training and expertise opportunities to support health staff across all the professions.
