Overview

We provide assessment and treatment for adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Since inception in the early 1990s, we have developed into a national specialist service providing diagnostic assessment and treatment.

We provide a unique service in an area where there is currently little clinical expertise or service provision in the NHS. In addition, we provide psychological interventions recommended by NICE including psychoeducation workshops and individual cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT).

NICE recommends that assessment and treatment services for adults with ADHD are best delivered on a local basis.  Therefore, whilst we continue to deliver national services at the Maudsley Hospital, we have developed wide experience of delivering adult ADHD services further afield, and in training local clinical teams. Local commissioning bodies are welcome to contact us to discuss arrangements for the delivery of bespoke assessment and treatment services (including pharmacotherapy, psychoeducation and CBT).

Key Areas: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

Neil’s story

“I congratulate you if you have just discovered, or are starting to suspect, that your life has been diminished by the effects of this condition and I express great optimism for your future given my experience and those of others I have read about: even if, like a few, you decide not to use the pills but go back 100 per cent armed with the knowledge and tricks of the trade to minimise pitfalls.”
