You can request that when being referred from one health service to another in the Outer Hebrides, the autism flagging function is utilised so that the receiving service is aware. You should also complete the Hospital Passport below and take this with you from service to service.

In addition you may wish to consider becoming involved in the NHS Western Isles Public Focus Patient Involvement work and take a hands on role in shaping the experience of local healthcare on behalf of others living with autism.
