Autism Bedfordshire are launching Hear Me, See Me, a campaign to examine the inequalities in health care that impact adults with autism and their families. Their campaign covers the East of England including Norfolk.
Over the next 18 months they will be listening to the experiences of adults, family members and carers from across the East of England, when accessing health care services. They will be using best practice examples and challenges faced to understand where things can be improved and feed it back to the NHS.
They are looking further than their members in Bedfordshire, holding virtual workshops across the East of England. They have already held workshops in Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire and are now focusing on Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. All sessions are on Zoom.
