Service available in:
The adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder service in Sefton is an award winning service that has a proven track record in providing innovative care to adults with ADHD.
It serves patients transitioning to adult care from community paediatrics and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) as well as providing a comprehensive assessment and diagnostic service for adults referred by their GP. The service adheres to the NICE guidance in its approach to treatment and medication is monitored by the treating clinician.
We have fostered strong links locally with third sector organisations that offer additional support for families of patients with ADHD.
Referral can be made via a patient's GP and following a comprehensive initial assessment, a formulation is provided. Comorbid psychiatric issues are addressed by referral to the relevant Community Mental Health team (CMHT).
ADHD is a complex condition and as such we recognise the importance of the initial assessment being carried out by a medical professional. We are currently supported by two consultant psychiatrists and a speciality doctor.
