Autism: Cambridgeshire Lifespan Autism Spectrum Service (CLASS) Clinic – NHS CPFT

Back to Support

CPFT's CLASS Clinic offers a specialist diagnostic assessment for adults who may have Autism Spectrum Disorder without intellectual disability or language delay.

Referrals must come from a GP and have had an initial assessment by the Primary Care Mental Health Service. Referrals can also be made by mental health services in CPFT.

More details on the referral process can be found on the CPFT website.

CLASS has a small team which includes clinical psychologists, assistant psychologist, consultant psychiatry, specialist nurse and admin support. You will be informed about which clinician(s) you will be meet as part of your assessment when you get your appointment letter.

The CLASS clinic is also involved in service evaluation and clinical research in order to improve the service we provide. They may contact you to invite you to take part in clinical research as part of your referral to the service.

For more information about autism in adults please go to the National Autistic Society website and the NHS conditions website.

This is a free service.
