National Genomics Education Programme

NHS England’s National Genomics Education (NGE) Programme exists to deliver and advise on learning and development opportunities that prepare current and future NHS professionals to make the best use of genomics in their practice.

Rapid advances in technology and understanding mean that genomics is now more relevant than ever before. As genomics increasingly becomes a part of mainstream NHS care, all healthcare professionals, and not just genomics specialists, need to have a good understanding of its relevance and potential to impact the diagnosis, treatment and management of people in our care.

The NGE’s objectives are:

  • Prepare the workforce to deliver the new England-wide NHS Genomic Medicine Service.
  • Support the completion of the landmark 100,000 Genomes Project.
  • Provide the best education opportunities in genomics for the NHS workforce.
  • Develop strategic collaborations to keep the UK at the forefront of genomics in healthcare.


Maternal Early Childhood Sustained Home-Visiting (MECSH) is a high-quality, evidence based, nurse-led structured programme for families identified as needing extra support in their parenting journey. Through the MECSH co-design process, the programme is adaptable to fit with local systems and match local needs. Clients are assessed for eligibility, recruited and retained through the routine care provided by the local service provider. Families are ideally recruited prenatally, but the programme allows for families to enrol within 6-8 weeks after the baby is discharged home from the birthing admission. MECSH is a programme of Western Sydney University, Australia.
