The 5-10 year plan sets out to enable enables patients and the public of Wales to benefit from better healthcare and underpins a bright future for the application of cutting-edge genomic technologies in NHS Wales.
The Genomics for Precision Medicine Strategy was developed by a Welsh Government-led genomics taskforce, including key stakeholders from academia, industry, the third sector, the NHS and the public. A series of workshops and meetings across Wales played a critical role in informing and underpinning the development of the Strategy.
