GPP eXtra

This series of five Good Practice Points (GPPs), collated together as a GPP eXtra, will help enhance health visitors’ understanding of genomics and how it will impact on their role and practice.

  • They will explore how to support children and families to benefit from genomic healthcare under five practical headings.
  • It is important to read all of the GPP eXtra series as they complement each other, to build your understanding.
  • These resources have been produced in partnership with Health Education England Genomics Education Programme and frontline practitioners, and are open access to all HVs.
