Services for Adults with suspected ADHD

Services for Adults with suspected ADHD currently have very long waits nationally, and our local provider has unfortunately closed to new referrals due to being unable to meet demand.

This is known as a “commissioning gap” – where the services available on the NHS do not meet the needs of the population – and it has been raised locally and nationally. You may wish to raise it yourself, e.g. with the ICB:

Please note if you choose to be seen privately, we will not be able to prescribe any recommended treatment on NHS prescriptions as we are only able to do so under the shared care responsibility of an NHS Consultant.
