Getting a diagnosis of autism
If you think you may be on the autistic spectrum then you can ask your doctor (GP) to refer you for a diagnosis.
Your doctor will refer you to the Bucks Adult Autism Diagnostic Service. This is a free NHS service. You can't refer yourself at present, but you can speak to the team for further advice.
