Adult ADHD Services

Services for Adults with suspected ADHD have very long waits nationally, and our local provider has closed to new referrals.

Your GP may not be able to enter into “shared care” arrangements with online/remote/other providers for Adult ADHD care, and therefore may not recommend an NHS referral at all. Or they may be able to refer to alternative providers “for assessment/diagnosis only”, but not able to share care for treatment.

Your GP may suggest a referral to the private sector, but would not be expected to enter into “shared care” with private specialists, as the NHS GP.

This is a “commissioning gap” – where the services avalable 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 your MP and/or with the ICB
