Advice - Who to go with - Right To Chose ?

Hi everyone, I am seeking some advice.

I am seeking an ASD diagnosis. I am considering either Axia ASD or Psychiatry UK.

Does anyone have any positive/negative experiences with either of these? I am an adult female.

    Hey @jimjam1441. A warm welcome to Scope’s community from me.

    I can hear you are considering either Axia ASD or Psychiatry UK to seek an ASD diagnosis. Do you have any thoughts at the moment on the pros and cons of each?

    Often, this can be a useful way to weigh it up for yourself, especially as we all look for different things in diagnostic services.

    Having said that, Psychiatry UK is more widely known so you might have a better chance of hearing other people’s experiences (such as if you Google reviews for Psychiatry UK).

    Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s anything else we can do to support you :)
