Our Division of Paediatric Genetics and Metabolism provides holistic inpatient and outpatient care for foetuses, children, and adults with proven or suspected genetic diseases (these include birth defects, chromosomal disorders, gene disorders etc).
Our services also include taking care of adults who are at risk of having children with genetic diseases. We help individuals understand their risk and provide carrier testing as needed (i.e. pre-conception genetic counselling and carrier testing).
In addition, we provide diagnostic services for individuals who have conditions that have an unknown cause (see
Undiagnosed Case Service).
We take referrals from polyclinics, general practitioners, specialists, and other allied health care workers. Private patients can be self-referred or referred by their doctor.
