National ADHD Medication Shortage

We are experiencing current severe disruptions in the supply of ADHD medications nationally.

NHS England have recently issued a National patient safety alert which highlights supply disruptions (please see link opposite)

We understand that this news may be unsettling and cause worry for you who rely on these medications as a crucial part of your treatment, please be assured that we recognise the role these medications play in your well-being and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our team are working hard to be as responsive as possible to any medication requests but please be aware that our capacity is currently limited due to the high levels of demand.
