UK Healthcare professionals - this is your chance to change tic services for the better!
In many regions of England, children and young people with tics and Tourette Syndrome are unable to access healthcare services for their tics. They experience long delays before they are given a diagnosis and, even once a diagnosis is given, they may be unable to access treatment or other support. This has a huge impact on the children and young people, their families and friends, and the wider systems that need to support them, including schools.
We are carrying out a survey of healthcare professionals in the UK who assess/treat tic disorders called 'Evaluating healthcare professionals experiences of assessing and treating tics in children and young people in the UK'.
The aim of the survey is to evaluate healthcare professionals experiences of assessing and treating children and young people with tics and Tourette Syndrome. If you are a healthcare professional working in a relevant clinical field in the UK please can you complete the survey.
The information we gain from the survey will be used to evaluate the barriers and facilitators to providing tic services for children and young people experienced by healthcare professionals in the UK.
