UK charity becomes Genetic Alliance UK
The UK charity the Genetic Interest Group has become the Genetic Alliance UK. First established in 1989, the Genetic Alliance UK works to improve the lives of people affected by genetic conditions, by promoting awareness and understanding of these disorders with a view to driving the provision of high quality health services. This role includes research, advocacy and patient support.
Members of the Genetic Alliance UK include individuals, families, and more than 130 organisations (patient groups and charities), many representing genetic conditions that are individually very rare.The rebranding has been prompted by a desire to provide ‘better insight into the voices we represent and the wide range of work we do’ (see announcement).
