Recruit a Patient
Testing of a comprehensive panel of obesity genes is now available through the NHS in England as part of a nationally commissioned service, so please now send patient DNA through this route.
The test is called ‘Severe Early-Onset Obesity (code R149)’.

As a result, we will no longer be accepting new referrals to the Genetics of Obesity Study (GOOS) from UK referrers.
Referrers from outside the UK
To discuss the suitability of a patient or any other questions, please contact us.
We will require clinical information and blood samples from the patient and ideally both parents as well as consent for whole exome sequencing.
Please find below the clinical questionnaire, whole exome sequencing consent form and information sheet required for referring your patient.
