Welcome to Genetic Health Service NZ. We provide expert genetic diagnostic and genetic counselling services, providing assistance, advice and education in managing genetic conditions. We operate clinics throughout the country with our staff of Clinical Geneticists and Genetic Counsellors. Our services are publicly funded for NZ residents as we are part of New Zealand’s public health system.

Genetic Counsellors also known as Genetic Associates have received the same training and provide the same role within a genetic service.

For patients referred to a clinic through a health professional, this website provides a guide to what to expect at your appointment. Read more.

For health professionals, this website provides a list of our services and how we can assist in diagnosing genetic conditions and help support people with genetic conditions. Read More
