ADHD Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder service
The service for adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been established and provided by the Trust since April 2009. The service has a clear pathway and outcome measures in place.
We consistently perform will in our service user feedback questionnaires and use feedback to continually improve our service.
We are fully compliant with all National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidance and provide an accessible service to our local communities.
Our team is unique in the country in terms of our make up and we have started to attract national interest as a centre of excellence by clinicians, media and politicians.
Following a confirmation of diagnosis our attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) team provide specialist assessment, treatment and support, such as:
- Information and education around ADHD
- Medication management
- Support to identify and achieve individual goals using the ADHD star assessment (a way to track progress)
- Psychological assessment and therapy
- Support to develop independent living skills
- Carer assessment, information and support
Interventions may be offered on an individual or group basis.
For adults accessing the service on an out of area basis, short term support will be offered. If long term support is needed this will normally mean an individual is referred back to their local services.
