From October 2018 the National Genomic Test Directory will specify which genomic tests are commissioned by the NHS in England, the technology by which they are available, and the patients who will be eligible to access a test. The final draft 2018/2019 National Genomic Test Directory for rare and inherited disorders and cancer can be accessed here. Among the rare and inherited disorders covered are hereditary ataxia with onset during childhood and hereditary ataxia with onset during adulthood. For our full report please see the Winter 2018 edition of the Ataxia magazine.
