We offer assessment and support around the diagnosis of ASD in adults with a GP in Kingston or Richmond.

If you think you might be autistic you can refer to our services here: ASD Assessment Referral Form or ask your GP to make a referral on your behalf.

How can I be assessed for autism?

You can refer yourself to be assessed for autism. There is a link to the online form at the end of this Q and A.

You can also ask your GP to refer you, or another professional such as another doctor or therapist. They can use the same link.

To refer to us at Your Healthcare you need to be over 18 years old and registered with a GP in Kingston or Richmond.

What happens after the referral has been made?

We will send you an email with links to 3 questionnaires that we would like you to fill in. If you have any difficulties at all in completing the forms, you can call us on the number provided and we will be able to provide advice and help.

We will also send a link to another questionnaire which needs to be filled in by someone who knew you during early childhood. This could be a parent, carer or a relative.

We will ask you to complete the questionnaires within 1 month. If you don’t do this, unfortunately we will have to close your referral.

What happens to the questionnaires after I have filled them in?

If ASD is likely

If your questionnaires suggest that ASD is likely, you will be automatically added to our waiting list.

We will send you a letter explaining that you have been added to the waiting list for an ASD assessment.

You don’t need to do anything more at this stage. We will get in touch near the time of your assessment to organise the details.

If ASD is unlikely

If it is clear from your answers that ASD is unlikely, we will write to you and explain that you have not been accepted onto our waiting list for an ASD assessment.

If the questionnaire answers need further review

If it not clear immediately from your questionnaires, whether or not an ASD assessment would be helpful, one of our clinicians will look very carefully at the answers and decide if a full assessment is likely to be helpful. We will then contact you and let you know.

If you’re still not sure and would like to ask some questions of the clinicians in the team, twice a year we deliver a pre-diagnostic information session. If you would like to attend this please contact:

This month we got 32 new referrals.
At the moment there are 482 people on the waitlist for assessment.
We are currently seeing people who were referred in September and October 2021.

We know the waiting list is long.
Information and knowledge about autism can be very helpful in the meantime, click on the 'information and support' tab for information.
