Screening Questions

Please complete all the questions below. These are needed before your GP can refer you to the neurodevelopmental service, who carry out a thorough assessment.

We will contact you if we require more information, or let you know if we have completed a referral to the neurodevelopmental service. If you have not heard from us in the next two weeks, please contact us though the practice website.

The waiting times are particularly long for the neurodevelopmental clinic. You can read more about this, including details of the assessment process, waiting times and information about additional support on the Sussex Partnership NHS website.
