Oxleas Adult Autism Assessment Service Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich

The Oxleas Adult Assessment service offers ASD assessments to adults over 18, without a learning disability who are registered with a GP in Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich.  

The service offers a full ASD diagnostic assessment to adults who have not been assessed or received a diagnosis in childhood.  Access to the service is via GP referral, or by referral from another professional who is working with you. 

Once referred, you will be asked to complete two screening questionnaires and if the results of the questionnaires suggest that you are reporting sufficient features of possible Autism, you will be put on the waiting list for a full diagnostic assessment.

The outcome of the assessment will indicate whether the threshold for a diagnosis is met or not.  Adults would then be signposted to relevant support services as needed.  

The team is made up of a range of professionals including Clinical Psychology, Occupational Therapy, and Speech & Language Therapy. All staff have specialist training in autism assessment and diagnosis. Once the assessment begins, adults are allocated a lead clinician and the assessment will be carried out over a short series of appointments. A feedback appointment will then be arranged.

We are not commissioned to provide ongoing support to Adults with ASD and we cannot see people who already have a diagnosis.  The service operates Monday - Thursday 9am to 5pm from various sites across Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich boroughs.

In January 2018 I went to Erith hospital where I filled out 2 questionnaires to see whether I was on the autism spectrum and I was told I scored quite high and would need to be assessed and was discharged from Erith Hospital. As there isn't many people who diagnoses adults I was told that I would have about a 19-20 month wait. I was told that this assessment would probably take place in August 2019. I wanted to contact the people who assess autism in adults to ask whether that wait has changed but I can't find the contact details for the people who do the assessment for adults. Do you know?
