Beehive is glad to welcome The Autism Service to the centre, offering weekly clinics on a Monday.
The Autism Service was set up in 2019 in response to feedback about existing services for people with ASD; children and adults were not able to access reliable assessments in a timely manner, nor were they able to access specialist interventions.
Initially launched in Shrewsbury, the service has expanded nationwide within a year and now has teams of psychologists, nurses, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists.
The Autism Service is led by Dr Lisa Williams, a consultant clinical psychologist with over 14 years’ experience. She has worked in three different ASD teams in the NHS and has led on diagnoses for preschool children all the way through to older adults, both with and without a learning disability.
Lisa has clinical oversight of every child and adult seen by the service and is responsible for maintaining the high quality of the assessments and interventions.
If you are Chester-based, or from the surrounding area, and are looking for an initial consultation, diagnostic assessment or support for existing ASD then this service can help you.
If you are looking for an autism assessment in this area and would like to find out more please do get in touch with them using the details below:

Please Note: All The Autism Service clinicians are registered with independent bodies that regulate the work of healthcare professionals (i.e. Health and Care Professionals Council or Nursing and Midwifery Council). These bodies set standards in terms of how professionals should behave and keep a register of professionals who meet these standards. You can check the registration of their clinicians by visiting the HCPC and NMC websites.
