I live near Edinburgh and am currently looking for a place where I can get diagnosed for autism.

I was on the NHS list for the assessment and had my first consultation with a psychiatrist recently. As he's not an autism specialist, he said he will refer me to a psychologist from the same hospital.

This means that I'm now on another waiting list and it can take them another year to offer me the appointment with the NHS psychologist. :(

Is there any way I can get diagnosed privately? What are my options? I'm happy to travel elsewhere in Scotland to get diagnosed.

Many thanks in advance.
