Dr Suzanne O’Sullivan, a consultant neurologist based at the National Hospital for Neurology, London, is writing a book about the concept of ‘diagnosis’. It includes a discussion of genetic diagnosis, all the great strides that have been made but also considering all the implications of a genetic diagnosis and how they are managed.
In the book she hopes to understand how it feels for a person to take the journey to a genetic diagnosis, with all the implications that brings. Not just what it is like to make the decision to have a test, but also what the waiting, hospital appointments and the aftercare are like.
