Reduce Autism diagnosis waiting times for children in Kirklees
16/01/19 - Thank you to everyone who supported this petition. Since this was launched, a new assessment pathway has been developed in Kirklees, which together with additional investment, has significantly reduced waiting times. There are still improvements to be made for these to meet with national recommendations.
The NHS Long Term Plan now recognises the autism diagnosis crisis, and states the NHS’s intention to bring down waiting times in line with best practice guidelines.
The Whole Autism Family group and the National Autistic Society continue campaigning to achieve this.
