The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WYHHCP) have created a survey to ensure that urgent and crisis care services meet the needs of people with autistic spectrum conditions.

They would like to hear about your experiences, over the past three years, of using or trying to use urgent or crisis care services. These include:
  • NHS 111 phone, or the online service
  • GP surgeries
  • Urgent treatment (or walk-in) centres
  • Hospital Accident and Emergency department (A&E)
  • Mental health crisis services
  • Yorkshire Ambulance Service

To ensure that services are meeting the needs of autistic people, the WYHHCP need you to tell them about what is working well and what needs improving.

Who is the survey for?

The survey is for autistic people of all ages,  their parents, carers or staff supporting individuals.  This includes people with a diagnosis of autism or Asperger syndrome, people who self-diagnose/identify as autistic, and people on the waiting list for an autism assessment. Throughout the survey, the term ‘autistic’ will be used to describe all these groups.

The WYHHCP will use your feedback to develop a plan for sharing good practice and improving access to care for autistic people throughout the region.
