Autism Health Access Project

Dear **Patient**,

Oakwood Lane Medical Practice are working with Leeds Autism AIM, part of the Advonet Group, on the Autism Health Access Project, a project which strives to improve the access to healthcare for autistic patients. We are contacting autistic patients to provide information and an opportunity to get involved.

The Autism Health Access Project team work alongside GP practices and patients in the Leeds district to improve services and address health inequalities faced by local autistic people. Its aims are to ensure the health needs of autistic patients are met, to give autistic patients a say in how their surgeries’ services are run, and to involve autistic people more in the GP services they use. 

The project may help you by:

– meeting you one-to-one to help you understand and communicate your needs

– offering peer support from an autistic member of staff

– helping you to request reasonable adjustments

– co-creating autism-specific health resources for use in GP appointments

– passing on any feedback you have about your GP services back to the practice.

To find out more about this project, how it will support autistic people, and what it might be able to offer you, please fill out our referral form on Leeds Autism AIM’s website, at or phone the Advonet Group office on 0113 244 0606.
