Question ref. S6W-02365
Asked by: Edward Mountain, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 18 August 2021


To ask the Scottish Government how many children were awaiting a neuro-developmental assessment on 1 August (a) 2019, (b) 2020 and (c) 2021, broken down by NHS board.

Current status: Answered by Kevin Stewart on 3 September 2021


The information requested is not held centrally. However, the Scottish Government is committed to developing and implementing a national specification for neurodevelopmental services which outlines service standards that all Boards should follow, to ensure access to this support is effective and consistent across Scotland. The national specification for neurodevelopmental services will be published shortly and will provide a basis to enhance evidence and data collection in relation to neurodevelopmental assessments and pathways for children and young people.
