Autism and Health 

Supporting autistic people to access their health and well-being services

In 2022, Autism Hampshire was part of a project to help autistic adults get the best out of their healthcare services and community. 

Below is a range of resources and information which we hope will continue to be useful for autistic adults across Hampshire and further afield. 

What support is available?

We worked in tandem with GP practices to provide better support for autistic adults through a number of practical measures:

  • Stubbington Medical Practice (including those patients registered at Lockswood and Brook Lane)
  • The Willow Group (Gosport)
  • Homewell Medical Practice (Havant)

Autistic people are now able to:

  • Watch virtual tours of the medical site online before they attend their appointment
  • View or read online profiles of the staff and doctors
  • Access easy-read information about medical procedures via Autism Hampshire website

Medical sites are also encouraged to provide a quiet waiting room with minimal sensory distractions to lessen anxiety.

Where can I watch videos?

A range of walk through videos were created as part of the project for the GP practices and leisure centres. They can all be viewed here: https://www.whatsitlike.co.uk/
