Healthcare Professionals

In common with other parts of England, work is underway in Sheffield to improve the services that are available to individuals and communities facing increased risk of genetic disorders due to the practice of marriage between close blood relatives (e.g. cousin marriage).

We aim to:

  1. Increase understanding of the issues among both professionals and the public
  2. Improve access to high quality, culturally appropriate services
  3. Enable more people to make informed choices about marriage and childbearing
