Once we have your genetic test results, you can expect to receive more bespoke treatment packages, tailored uniquely to you. You will be better informed about any increased risks of developing diseases, and you will be prioritised for routine checks or scans so any problems can be caught and treated in the earliest stages.
These simple saliva based (cheek-swab) tests are quick and easy to do and can be done in the comfort of your own home. Once the lab has received your sample, you will be emailed and your results will be ready within 7 to 10 working days.
We can provide the following genetic tests. Your charge with Wessex Private GP will include a follow-up consultation once you have received your results:
The Psychiatric Pharmacogenetic Test
Understand how your genetic makeup affects your response to various psychiatric treatments and medications.
This test will help guide treatments for a range of psychiatric conditions including:
Depression, Anxiety, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Chronic Pain and Substance abuse.
The Pharmacogenetic Test
A person’s DNA will affect their response to medication. Many medications will have a negative impact even for common conditions. Furthermore, some people can suffer serious adverse side-effects.
This test is for anyone, of any age, that is taking medication for long-term conditions such as asthma, diabetes, arthritis, blood pressure or cardiac issues.
It is also a useful test for anyone about to be prescribed medications with indicated pharmacogenetic biomarkers, including:
- where there are more than one drug options
- where the drug has known serious side-effects
- when the starting dosage is not clear
- for those taking more than one drug already
