Genomics England is accountable to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care who is the sole shareholder. Following the completion of the 100,000 Genomes Project, Genomics England will continue to support NHS England with the development, establishment and successful operation of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service, and in particular the NHS Long Term Plan commitment to sequence 500,000 whole genomes by 2023/24.
