NHS Website

NHS Website is the UK’s biggest health website. It provides comprehensive health information designed to help put you in control of your own health. The service is intended to help you make choices about your health, from lifestyle decisions about things such as smoking, drinking and exercise, through to the practical aspects of finding and using NHS services when you need them.

The NHS Website can also give you advice on a wide range of medical conditions and treatments.  You can:

  • Enter your symptoms online and get advice on treating common health problems at home.
  • Get quick answers to hundreds of the most common health questions.

ASD Assessment / Diagnosis Information

NHS partners are working together to understand the current high demand for ASD diagnosis. We want to make sure services are right for children and families whether there is a diagnosis or not. We are aware that families are waiting too long for their assessment. This is reflected in other areas across the country.

We have added extra capacity into the system and are now offering further choice using new technology to undertake a diagnosis. As part of the ASD diagnosis process, the CCG has asked Healios to work with RDaSH, the current provider, to offer an option of online diagnosis where this appropriate for the individual, based on need.
