I've been trying to get information regarding this for ages, but there doesn't seem to be anything concrete about it. I do remember finding mention of an NHS 'implementation date' in May 2019, but I've just googled it and nothing seems to come up. All the other information I've found seems to indicate that the ICD-11 may not be used until 2022, but I've found nothing specific to the UK/NHS.
I am hoping to get my diagnosis updated to ASD using the ICD-11 at some stage, for personal reasons.
I have heard rumours that some areas are already diagnosing people with ASD in preparation for the change, but I don't know how reliable this information is or how frequent it is (or even if it's true).
Does anyone have any information about this that they could share? I am particularly interested in the Adult Assessment Centre in Sheffield and assessment in North Derbyshire.
I was diagnosed in N.Derbyshire 18 months ago, My report states ASD as defined by DSM-V, it then goes on to say what sub category I'd be given by ICD-10.
From the posts on here of people who have been recently diagnosed, it seems most areas now are using ASD rather than Aspergers.
I was diagnosed last summer, and mine is Aspergers under ICD 10, but with this paragraph added:
Please note that in meeting the diagnostic criteria for Asperger Syndrome, in accordance with The World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (the ICD-10), criteria would also be satisfied for a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM V).
Why is the NHS using DSM-5 when it's American?
Did you know that ICD-10 officially exists in the US as it is a member of the WHO?
Aperger's was removed from the diagnosis book DSM5 and is falling in popularity as a named diagnosis due to his unfavourable ties with Nazi Germany www.theguardian.com/.../aspergers-syndrome-dropped-psychiatric-dsm
This may explain when it is coming into use www.thelancet.com/.../fulltext
I was diagnosed in the West Midlands 15 months ago and they used DSM5 exclusively. I was given no subcategories or any other info other than yes I fulfill the criteria for ASD, there was no mention of Aspergers in my report whatsoever.
Hi Jonesy... mind is using ICD-10.... just printed off the details this morning (second assessment appointment next week)
Hi Ellie! Hope you are doing OK? Good luck for next weeks apt!
Was this a private or an NHS centre? If it was an NHS centre then which trust was it in?
