The Adult Autism Diagnostic Service is co-ordinated from Keegan Court, Grassbanks, Gateshead. The service is provided by appropriately qualified existing practitioners within the Trust drawn from a multidisciplinary staff (including Nursing, Psychiatry and Psychology). Assessments will be carried out in the Trusts existing facilities.
The aim of the service is to develop and provide a clear diagnostic pathway for adults who are not already in receipt of NTW services. The service is easily accessible via a number of referral routes, GPs, Community Mental Health Teams, Self Referral, Carer Referral and through Education providers.
