Additional information from employer: The Newcastle, Leeds and Sheffield genetics laboratories are now working in a collaborative as Yorkshire and North East Genomic laboratory hub. Whilst predicting workforce requirements for the future is difficult, we predict that there will be some staff turnover within our teams and an increased requirement for scientific roles as the implementation of the national genetic test directories introduce whole genome sequencing analysis and reporting at scale. Our workforce review is therefore a Yorkshire and North East Genomic Laboratory Hub wide review, including Genomics, Cancer Genomics and Bioinformatics. We do not expect a decrease in workforce requirement and anticipate the requirement for an expansion of complex reporting and the national introduction of more personalised medicine and pharmacogenomic testing.
Travel information: Newcastle, Leeds and Sheffield are currently accredited as individual training centres. Each centre will submit an application for trainees and the trainees will be employed by, and based at, that Trust. As our Yorkshire and North East Genomic Laboratory Hub (Y&NE GLH) becomes further established we will be consolidating activity and it will be necessary for the trainee to spend time at our partner organisations during their period of training in order to receive a complete programme of education and development. This will be built into training plans which will clearly developed and communicated with the trainees and supported by the Y&NE GLH training group which is established across the hub.
