A visit to hospital can be an incredibly challenging and distressing experience for someone with autism. The Autism resources are provided to try and reduce this stress and make our hospital and services more accessible and friendly to patients on the autism spectrum.
These boxes contain a number of devices, tools, distractions and information to help patients on our wards and outpatient suites cope with the experience of being in hospital.
The boxes are currently kept in:
The Emergency Department
the Eye Centre
Education Centre Library
Autism Information Packs
These packs are in red plastic folders and contain patient information, hospital passports, leaflets and other items which help to improve the patient experience.
Please contact us if you require any Autism Information Packs.
