About the CGS

The Clinical Genetics Society (CGS) was set up in 1970 to bring together doctors and other professionals involved in the care of individuals and families with genetic disorders, with the following aims:

  • to advance and promote the science and practice of Clinical Genetics
  • to bring together workers who have a common interest in Clinical Genetics
  • to understand, prevent, cure and alleviate conditions with a genetic aetiology
  • to publish and disseminate reports, statements, and research findings

Since its creation, the CGS membership has increased steadily, and the aims have broadened, and now include:

  • promoting and facilitating education for the genetics community, other health care professionals, those outwith the profession, and the wider public
  • encouraging high standards of training for professionals within Clinical Genetics
  • facilitating research into basic human genetics and genetic disorders
  • maintaining excellent links with patient groups
  • continuing constructive dialogue with government and other politicians on genetics-related issues
