ADHD assessment and management

Welcome to our ADHD assessment and management service. Please read the below information and FAQs before making a booking.

ADHD, or Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by difficulties with

  • organisation and time management
  • following instructions
  • focusing and completing tasks
  • coping with stress
  • feeling restless or impatient
  • impulsiveness and risk taking

Some adults may also have issues with relationships or social interaction.
Studies estimate that ADHD affects between 2% and 6% of adults.

Our team of experienced Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Advanced Nurse Practitioners is dedicated to providing personalised support for individuals facing ADHD challenges.


What is the assessment process?

Initial assessments are completed over 2 x one hour video sessions with a Clinical Psychologist or Consultant Psychiatrist. A clinical hour typically comprises 45-50 minutes of client discussion with the remainder providing the clinician time to complete notes and administrative tasks.

Following the assessment you will be provided with a diagnostic report and letter to your GP outlining the outcome of the assessment including any diagnosis and/or treatment recommendation.

If the assessment concludes that you have a diagnosis of ADHD and you wish to explore medication, a Medication Review appointment can be booked, which will be with a Consultant Psychiatrist. Subsequent medication review appointments may be with a Consultant Psychiatrist or Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Can I have my appointment in person and not online?

We are in the process of re-opening our in-person assessment centre which is due to open later in 2023.

Do I need a referral from my GP?

Yes a GP referral must be submitted at the time of booking your appointment. The referral must include details of any past medical and mental health history. This can be uploaded as part of the booking process or can be emailed to [email protected]

We do not accept referrals from psychologists or mental health counsellors.

Are there situations where you do not offer assessments to clients?

Yes - we do not currently offer assessments to individuals who are under the care of another psychiatrist or are attending their community mental health team (CMHT).

We do not offer assessments on an urgent basis.

We do not offer assessments to individuals with active substance misuse difficulties.

What if I have a previous diagnosis of ADHD?

Please upload or email your diagnostic report AND the referral letter from your GP at the time of booking.

You will still need to book in for an initial 60 minute assessment with a Consultant Psychiatrist, and follow-up appointments to review any prescribed medication.

Patients need to be seen for a follow-up appointment 2 weeks after a medication is initiated, and again following a 6 week trial of an appropriate medication, and every 4 months thereafter.

Can the service prescribe medication?

Yes, our Psychiatrists and Advanced Nurse Practitioners can prescribe medication where appropriate. Please note that medication can only be prescribed after a completed diagnostic assessment and physical examination with your GP, including a cardiovascular examination, heart rate and blood pressure check to ensure there are no underlying issues.

We will write to your GP advising them of the outcome of any assessment and request details of the physical examination, which you will need to schedule with your GP following your assessment.

Individuals who have completed the assessment process and have a confirmed diagnosis of ADHD can book a Medication Review appointment to discuss medication. Your initial Medication Review appointment will be with a Consultant Psychiatrist. If medication is deemed appropriate, initially a 2 week prescription is issued with another medication review appointment needed then to assess progress and discuss next steps.

How many follow up appointments will I need?

This depends on response to medication and can vary. Sometimes multiple medications need to be trialled in order to find the most suitable one for an individual.

At minimum individuals need to be seen for a medication review appointment 2 weeks after a new medication is initiated, and again following a 6 week trial of an appropriate medication, and every 4 months thereafter.

Patients also need a 6-monthly physical check-up with their GP while taking ADHD medication.
