Add to CPD Start a discussion

We offer new patient assessment, diagnosis, medication testing and titration with 12-month annual reviews to adults (18+) living in City and Hackney.

What we offer:

Currently we offer new patient assessment, medical reviews for patients with an existing diagnosis of ADHD, medication testing and titration and 12 month annual reviews.  We are planning to offer non-pharmacological interventions in the near future such as psychological therapy, group interventions and psychoeducation.

This service is not an urgent care service and we do not offer care co-ordination or crisis care.  For urgent clinical matters please contact the City & Hackney 24 hour crisis line: 0800 073 0006

 

Useful aids to use before referral:

For adult ADHD referrals without a previous diagnosis, please:
1.    Ask patient to complete the patient reporting scale. (They can email this to you or take with them at assessment)
2.    Consider using the GP screening questions which may be helpful in establishing concerns
3.    Complete the usual referral form and send all to the single point of entry
