What happens once my doctor sends a referral to GSWA?

Once we receive your referral, a genetic counsellor will review the information included. Before we make you an appointment it is important that we gather all the necessary details about your family history to enable us to make an accurate assessment.

A genetic counsellor may phone you to ask these questions (please note this will be from a private number) but we may also send you paperwork in the mail to complete. This may include a family history questionnaire or consent forms to be signed by your family members. All information provided before, during, or after your appointment is treated confidentially.

Once we have enough information to decide how we can best assist you, we will contact you to discuss the next steps.
