Adults Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Assessment & Diagnostic service in York, Manchester & online

Assessment and diagnostic service for ADHD

Many adults who are seeking an ADHD assessment are often experiencing problems in their everyday lives such as relationship issues, high levels of stress and difficulties managing daily responsibilities.

Through our assessment service, our team of experienced and friendly clinicians can determine if these issues are because of ADHD or as a result of other causes.

What are we commissioned to provide?

The ADHD assessment and medication service at the Retreat Clinics are currently resourced and commissioned to provide –

up to 242 ADHD diagnostic assessments per year

Dependant on demand there may be priority given to medication clients within the ADHD pathway due to urgent need, this may impact on the number of ADHD assessments we can provide.

Due to this increased demand on our services, we are continually exploring ways to changes to our assessment pathways so that our clients receive efficient and robust assessments whilst ensuring that we see as many people as we can, however, please be aware that we are unable to go beyond our commissioning capacity due to the limitations within our current NHS contract
