This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Greater Glasgow NHS Board,

I am writing by way of the Freedom of Information Act to request information held by Greater Glasgow NHS Board concerning the wait times for a diagnostic assessment for adults with undiagnosed autism. I would like to know the target wait from referral, average wait time from referral over the last year, and current wait time from referral for both cases in which:
- a clinician not within the NHSGGC Adult Autism Team is undertaking the diagnostic assessment and requesting consultation and advice.
and
- NHSGGC Adult Autism Team is carrying out the diagnostic assessment.

Yours faithfully,
H Davidson
