GPs urged to develop national autism register

NICE is calling on GPs to develop a national autism register to ensure autistic people receive the tailored care they need.

The register will mean patients on the autistic spectrum will be easily identifiable to healthcare professionals working within the GP surgery.

This will help the staff to adapt their approach to suit their patient’s needs – for example, nurses can ensure children on the autistic spectrum are called for vaccinations at the beginning of surgeries when the waiting rooms are quieter and could turn down lights for those with sensory problems.
