Description: The primary aim of this programme is to deliver the Prime Minister's commitment to sequence 100,000 whole human genome samples by December 2017. The Project has four specific aims: to bring benefit to patients and create a genomic medicine service for the NHS; to enable new scientific discovery and medical insights; to create an ethical and transparent programme based on consent; to kick start the development of a UK genomics industry.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: RAG rating reflects that fewer sequences have been completed than expected at this stage. SRO & Programme Director continue to monitor the situation and proactively challenge delivery partners (e.g. Genomics England on informatics and NHS England on Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs) providing samples) via project Steering Group and Assurance Board. Ministers, No 10 and IPA understand current status and delivery challenges relating to this world-leading project.
Start date: 2013-04-10
End date: 2017-12-31
Schedule text: Planned delivery of project remains 31 December 2017. Key achievements this quarter include: GMCs continue to ramp up collection of rare disease samples, GENE Consortium given access to 300 linked datasets, and work continues to identify optimum method for extracting enough quality DNA from cancer samples.
Baseline: £50.00m
Forecast: £27.40m
Variance: -45.20%
Variance text: Main project spend relates to sequencing costs. As fewer samples have been collected by GMCs than expected, fewer whole genome sequences have been completed and hence actual spend has been lower than forecast.
Whole Life Cost: £160.00m
WLCost text: Budgeted Whole Life cost is £160m - £140m for Genomics England and £20m for Health Education England.
