Feedback on services for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
We heard from local residents who had used the ADHD service for adults.
Key learning points
- Is there a way of making it quicker for patients to have their medication reviewed by the Trust, if their GP is unable to do this?
Patients were very willing to consider alternative models if this would help others (or themselves) to be seen more quickly.
There was a suggestion that it would be helpful to access support and advice whilst waiting for assessment. This seems like a good idea as most people who are sent for assessment do end up with a diagnosis, but even if they do not, they could benefit from the learning around issues such as sleep hygiene.
