The Adult Genetics Unit of the South Australian Clinical Genetics Service (SACGS) provides a state-wide service for the genetic assessment, counselling and testing of adults and their families with genetic/familial disorders.
This includes a specialist familial cancer service.
Clinics are held at metropolitan and country hospitals, and there is a component of outreach work in rural and remote Australia requiring the use of Telemedicine.
A referral letter from a medical practitioner is required. If the referral is for suspected familial cancer, a referral proforma is available on request.
To make an appointment post, fax or email the referral letter to the Adult Genetics Unit. Referral from other health professionals will be accepted in some circumstances.
