To answer your question, I have heard of 22q11.2 but have not heard it referred to as Goldberg Shprintzen syndrome.  My limited understanding is that 22q11.2 deletion is usually called DiGeorge or Velo-Cardio-Facial syndrome, and it is estimated to occur as often as 1 in every 2000 births (in the United States), though that may be completely different and separate from Goldberg-Shprintzen. Hope that helps. ~eureka

DiGeorge (22q11.2) is fairly well-documented, but like you say, there seems to be much less information out there about Goldberg-Shprintzen (10q22.1, KA1279), which is different and less common than Shrprintzen-Goldberg.  

I found some good resources and gateways on line that maybe useful:

Also, I don't know where you are exactly in the UK in reference to this doctor, but if you're pursuing info on 10q22.1 as opposed to 22q11.2, you might look him up:
