Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing to personalise prescribing of certain medicines can improve patient outcomes and reduce adverse drug reactions. This article summarises the key findings of the PGx Impact study, designed to estimate the impact of pre-emptive genetic testing on prescribing, and discusses potential ways in which pharmacogenetic testing may optimise primary care prescribing in the near future.
