COVID-19 Update [21st August 2020]
As the news of COVID-19 continues to develop, we are working hard to create the safest possible environment for our children and families as well as staff in these difficult times.
The Specialist Assessment Service has two teams, during the pandemic these teams have been impacted in different ways;
- Autism Team: We are now able to offer appointments to families and have started to take children off the waiting list in strict date order. We have also started working with families of children whose assessments were started before lock down and were not able to be completed. In response to the pandemic and social distancing guidance from the Government and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust we have made some changes to our assessment process.

- Complex Medical Needs Team: This team have continued to work with families throughout the pandemic by providing telephone consultations. This team have also been working hard to find new ways of working to increase the services they are able to offer.
If you have any specific queries then please contact us on Tel; 0121 722 8010. However we have limited administrative cover and it may take us a few days to be able to return any calls.
We wish you and your family well and hope you all remain safe at this time.
