For each referral, we require a completed patient referral proforma. We need this clinical, auxological and biochemical information before we can proceed with the genetic analysis.
To participate in the study, a legal guardian and/or the patient must be given the appropriate study information sheets to read. These explain what the project is about, what will happen to the sample they provide and our contact details.
Once they have read and understand the study information, they must complete the relevant consent form which should also be signed by the referring clinician or person obtaining consent. Please return a copy of the completed consent form(s) with the samples or electronically to Professor Helen Storr (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you have any queries about this process, please do get in touch with a member of our team.
