In January, a Genomics Taskforce was established to ensure Wales capitalises on recent advances in genomics for health and wealth. This led to the production of a Statement of Intent for Genomics and Precision Medicine in Wales (published in March 2016): http://gov.wales/about/cabinet/cabinetstatements/previous-administration/2016/genomics/?lang=en.
The Taskforce is now working to develop a wider Strategy for Genomics and Precision Medicine by Autumn 2016. The aim of the strategy is to create an internationally competitive environment for genomics and precision medicine to support the delivery of prudent healthcare for the population of Wales.
The Taskforce is looking to engage with interested parties across Wales and has arranged a series of meetings to gather views and feedback. The purpose of the meetings will be:
- To share information about plans for developing a Strategy for Genomics and Precision Medicine in Wales
- To allow stakeholders (including those from the public and patients, Higher Education Institutions, the NHS, Industry and the Third Sector) to contribute their opinions and voice any concerns
- To capture the opinions of key stakeholders to inform the development of the Strategy
