Autism (Wales) Bill

17 / 09 / 2018

The Welsh NHS Confederation has recently submitted a response to the Autism (Wales) Bill.

The response highlights: 
That services should be based on need and be person-centred and child-centred;
The potential for increased rates of inaccurate or inappropriate diagnosis;
The need to consider the impact on and evaluation of existing programmes of work in Wales relating to Neurodevelopmental Disorders (ND) and ASD; 
The potential implications of introducing condition-specific legislation; and
There is currently insufficient evidence to show that autism-specific legislation would enhance the services already being delivered across NHS Wales and local government and will lead to improvements in the support being provided to people with ASD.
