As a practice we have recently completed a learning exercise around the subject of autism.
We have decided to pledge to make Eden Court more accessible for our patients with autism.
To achieve this we will be writing to each patient with autism or their carers, offering the chance to let the surgery know how best we can help you. This may involve consulting with the same familiar doctor each visit, having appointments at quieter times, and making booking appointments easier. We also hope to offer more written information where that is appropriate. Your choices will be recorded into your patient record so your healthcarers are more aware.
Do let us know any feedback about this and watch this space for more details.
