Metabolic pathways: networks of care

A needs assessment and review of services for people with inherited metabolic disease in the United Kingdom


In May 2004 the Joint Committee on Medical Genetics commissioned this UK-wide needs assessment and service review for inherited metabolic disease. The work was supported with a grant from the Department of Health and was a major part of the Public Health Genetics Unit 2004/05 work programme. It was lead by Hilary Burton, Consultant in Public Health at the Public Health Genetics Unit, Cambridge and involved a stakeholder group of specialists in the inherited metabolic disease services, commissioners, and voluntary organisations.
