With the continuing developments and advances made in the understanding of the Human Genome, clinical genetics has become very relevant for General Practice.

The implications for primary care practice include a better understanding of the genetic basis of diseases such as cancer, reproductive medicine, diabetes and heart disease and therefore the potential for intervention. This includes managing patients with genetic disorders, screening advice, genetic testing and dealing with ethical dilemmas in practice.

The Primary Care Genetics Society (PCGS) was established to support and facilitate the education of primary care professionals (PCPs), in response to the increasing interest of the public in genetics and it's relevance to the provision of healthcare to help translate the continuing advances in clinical genetics into practice.
