How can Gloucestershire’s health and care services improve support for adults with autism?

by | Sep 8, 2022 | Healthwatch Gloucestershire, Local Healthwatch

Healthwatch Gloucestershire, the county’s independent health and social care champion, is asking local people to share their views and experiences to help improve care and support for adults with autism.

They want to find out about the care and support adults with autism currently receive through assessment, diagnosis, and ongoing care. They want to learn what works well and how things might be done differently to improve the experiences and outcomes for everyone who seeks support for autism.

They are also seeking to understand the barriers that make it difficult for adults with autism to get the care they need, for example, when trying to get appointments with hospitals, GPs or social services.

By listening to local people, analysing and reporting on their stories and ideas for change, Healthwatch Gloucestershire will advise NHS and care providers how to develop and improve support for adults with autism.

How to share your views

If you, or a family member or friend, have autism, get in touch with Healthwatch Gloucestershire to arrange a time to talk over the phone, in person or online. Call 01452 504989 or Freephone 0800 6525193 or email:

Alternatively, you can share your views by completing a short online survey by 7 October 2022 [survey now closed]
