A national information line has been launched for people wishing to find out more about the 100,000 Genomes Project.
The information line can answer ad-hoc questions or people can book an appointment to go through the consent materials in detail. Current participants and members of the public can also call with questions about taking part in the project.
The line is open from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday and the number is 0800 389 8221.
Information line staff cannot tell people whether they are eligible to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project or give individual medical advice.
