The Regional Genetics Laboratory is based at Salisbury District Hospital but managed by University Hospitals Southampton (UHS) from 1st October 2022. Together with Molecular Pathology at UHS, we form the Wessex Genomics Laboratory Service, a constituent of the Central and South Genomics Laboratory Hub.

We provide an accredited genetics and genomics service for a core population of 3 million in the South Central (formerly Wessex) region of England, as well as specialist testing for other centres as part of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service (GMS). We accept samples referred by health care professionals from the UK or abroad, and offer high-quality testing, interpretation and reporting for a wide range of genetic conditions. The laboratory is ISO15189-accredited and is directed by Professor Nick Cross MA PhD FRCPath.

We work in conjunction with the Wessex Clinical Genetics Service (WCGS) based at Princess Anne Hospital, Southampton and undertake basic and applied research as part of the University of Southampton.
