Northern Genetics Service

Contact us

The Northern Genetics Service encourages everyone to send us their comments and complaints, as sometimes this is the only way we know where our service may not be fully meeting the needs of users. In this way we can continually improve the service we offer.

Of course, we all like to think we are doing a good job, so we also like to hear form anyone about what we have done well or what people are particularly pleased about, so that we can pass this on to the staff involved.

A continued two way approach to resolving problems and issues is the best way to ensure the optimum patient care.

You can contact us easily by letter, telephone or email:
