York Health and Wellbeing Board

20th September 2023

Helen Jones, chair of YDRF, spoke for us in the public participation section of the board. Hazel Kerrison, Cat Owens, Gemma Barstow (Spectrum First) and Manar Matusiak (Living Autism) also spoke in this section about the autism and ADHD assessment restrictions and its impact.

The agenda item covering this issue in which Healthwatch presented their evaluation report on the pilot scheme was moved last minute to be the final agenda item.

The meeting notes for the board included a discussion of the Dementia pathway which stood in stark contrast to the autism and ADHD pathways.

The attendee representing TEWV NHS left the meeting before the agenda item concerning the Healthwatch evaluation report.
