Call on GPs to help influence autism services7th February 2013
The National Autistic Society (NAS) is calling on GPs and other health professionals to help inform how services for people with autism are implemented going forward.
This year the Government is reviewing their strategy for adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in England, which came into affect three years ago.
A number of points in the strategy were aimed at improving health services for people with autism, these included:
- Training for all NHS staff including GPs
- Developing a clear pathway to assessment and diagnosis of autism in adults
- Planning of post-diagnosis services for people with autism
GPs can put their views across by responding to the following survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AutismStrategyReviewProfessionals
It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to fill in and closes on 28 February 2013.
