First time needing advice?
If you, or a friend or relative, have concerns and need to seek advice during office hours, then you can access advice and information from a number of sources.
- Your GP may be able to help with specific health concerns
- If you don’t have a GP, use the NHS website to locate the nearest one to you.
- The Local Offer websites for Derby City and Derbyshire County Council contain useful information and advice for both parents and professionals:
- The Derby and Derbyshire emotional health and wellbeing website includes information for parents and carers on getting help in a crisis and also has a specific area on neurodiversity.
If a parent, carer or professional is concerned, you should seek advice from your child’s education provider. If your child is not in education you can contact your GP or the health visiting service (if your child is under five):
