The first meeting was 50mins. I was quite confident about having ADHD and so was he after the standard tests, and he gave a diagnosis and Ritalin order with instructions for finding the right dose. He was efficient and knew I came back the week after for 25mins and we finalized a dose. He is careful about dosage which is important. Another follow-up 3months later.

I am now seeing him when needed, maybe annual unless something comes up. He wanted something more regular but I was unwilling because about the expense; I had to be quite firm about this. The cost for 50mins is about 450GBP, half that for 25mins.

Note that I was well researched in the condition, had evaluated myself and read some of the medical literature on treatments. So it might have taken fewer visits than another case.

In any case I recommend him as someone who will be good at diagnosing and treating ADHD.

Edit: just saw the stuff about sex with patients. Disturbing. Doesn't affect me, I'm paying for a service, but avoid him if you're a woman.

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

I have tried to contact the Johannes Thome contact in Swansea several times by email on their really poor website, but have never heard anything back. Will try calling them, but not sure what to say?

And when it says 'NHS AND Private', does that mean I can get an appointment with them without a referral from my normal GP and be prescribed on NHS?

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

Does anyone know of any private clinics in South Wales that will assess adult ADD?

I'm having no luck with the NHS in Rhondda Cynon Taf so rather than spend months or longer fighting I'm going to go private. This is a stretch for me but really think it will be worth it.

All of the names and locations I've read in online forums have led to dead ends.

I've tried Sancta Maria Hospital, BUPA and they're no go.

I've spoken to the Dyscovery Centre in Newport. They're very helpful but expensive. I'm currently looking at being assessed in Bristol. Even with the time and travelling they'll work out substantially cheaper for me.

Ideally I'd like to use a South wales clinic if an affordable one exists.

Has anyone been assessed privately in South Wales recently?

With thanks

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

My GP told me that he referred me to a guy in the building he is in (Birkenhead, Merseyside) to get evaluated, I am 25 years old. I have only just now within the past hour learned that astonishingly adult ADHD is not even considered real in the UK, which is both equal parts disgusting and disturbing. I finally thought I had found what was wrong with me and would be able to get help for it, and I was looking forward to it. It has been a few weeks since he told me he was going to refer me for the evaluation, and told me I would get a letter in the post about it, but it has been a few weeks now and I have had no such letter - is this because the guy probably got the referral and denied it because I'm not a child?

I have made an appointment to see my GP on Friday and I will talk to him about it.

In the meantime, are there any adult assessment centres in the North-West at all? I really don't think I will be able to get all the way down to London.

In the meantime also I am going to self medicate with Armodafinil.

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

I can't edit my post, but shortly after I found out that the only guy in the entire north-west of england who does adult adhd happens to be in the exact same clinic that my GP is in, and is the one he referred me to. What the hell kind of luck is that?

Dr. Peter Mason
Stein Centre
St. Catherines Hospital
Derby Rd
Birkenhead CH42 O1Q

No phone number that I can find, sorry.

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

Why are all the clinics in England?

Does ADHD not exist in Scotland or something?

There is a very good clinic for ADHD in Scotland, but I've forgotten which one it is. It might be the one in Glasgow or maybe the Lothian one.

Re: Adult ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

Cambridge Adult ADHD Clinic.

www.cambridgeadhdclinic.com

Dr Pironti is very professional and knowledgeable, he is also an academic.
After his diagnosis I got my prescription from my GP (if you want to pay for the meds they also arrange the service).

I went to the London clinic, but they see patients in Cambridge too.


Cheers
James
