Description: The primary aim of this programme is to deliver the then Prime Minister, David Cameron's, commitment to sequence 100,000 whole human genome samples by December 2018. 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
DCA text: The RAG rating reflects the good progress made and clear focus on preparation for transitioning the project into the Genomics Medicine Service. SRO and Programme Director continue to proactively challenge delivery partners (e.g. Genomics England on informatics and NHS England on GMCs providing samples) at the Project Delivery Board. Ministers, No 10 and the IPA understand current status, delivery challenges relating to this world-leading project.
Start date: 2013-04-10
End date: 2018-12-31
Schedule text: To fulfil the vision of the Project, we are always working at the edge of known science and as with all scientific research, it takes time to get it right. We have made great progress and are on track to sequence 100,000 genomes by end of Dec 2018. Genomics England and NHS England report that recruitment of the rare disease element of the project is going well. Delivery of the cancer element of the project has been challenging but is improving.
Baseline: £50.00m
Forecast: £82.70m
Variance: 65.00%
Variance text: Over the life of the project we have reprofiled the sequencing element, resulting in a higher proportion of the samples being sequenced in 18-19 than originally planned. This does not change the overall cost but reduces spend in the earlier years and increases it in 18-19.
Whole Life Cost: £369.90m
WLCost text: The Budgeted Whole Life Costs is £369.9m for Genomics England and Health Education England (HEE). Some of the anticipated spend for 2017/18 occurs in 2018/19. The increased forecast for 18/19 is due to increased costs associated with developing Genomics England’s elements of the Genomic Medicine Service.
