Experimental waiting times data for autism services published for first time

NHS Digital has published partial statistics on waiting times for people in contact with autism services – the first time this data has been available.

The report includes data on the number of new patients referred for suspected autism within the reporting period and waiting times for the first appointment. These experimental statistics are undergoing evaluation and should be used with caution as they do not capture all patients. In addition, information is based on total submissions for England and at provider level, but not all provider organisations are submitting data. Work is ongoing to establish the number of organisations who should be submitting autism data.
