Parents, carers, children, and young people who have used the service in the last three years are being called upon to attend virtual focus groups to share experiences of the autism assessment service in North Yorkshire.

Suzanne Bennett, Head of Children and Young Peoples Services for NHS North Yorkshire CCG, said: "As we are reviewing existing delivery models across North Yorkshire, these focus groups are a great opportunity to gather meaningful and informed feedback from service users, family, parents, and carers to help shape the future autism assessment services."

The focus groups will take place via Zoom across April on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 27 April 2022 - 2pm - 4pm
  • Thursday 28 April 2022 - 6pm - 8pm
  • Saturday 30 April 2022 - 10am - 12pm

These sessions will look at what is working well and what is not so well, update you on what is happening in North Yorkshire and give you the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences.
