Private patients and other non-NHS referrals

Testing for patients outside the UK National Health Service can be offered, where the referring clinician agrees the utility of the test. All requests for testing MUST be sent by an appropriate Consultant Clinician, and the results will be returned to this Clinician.

  • Non-NHS funded orders must be placed online, via, or will incur an additional 10% surcharge.
  • Test costs are shown on the GeneAdviser website. If accessing the website from a NHS networked computer you will see NHS prices;  if accessing via any other network you will see prices for non-NHS funded referrals, which are 50% higher than the NHS costs.
  • Payment can be made online, or an invoice can be requested, as required.
