The adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) clinic is a specialist service offering assessments for adults with possible ADHD and previously diagnosed ADHD.

The Adult ADHD Service, which has clinics in Cambridge and Peterborough, offers:

  • Annual review of ADHD medication

Referral criteria

  • The service is for people aged 17 to 65 Years.

  • Patients with a complex needs, major co-morbidity or a high degree of risk in association with mood instability, risk to self, criminal offending or safeguarding issues should be referred to the Adult Locality Team (or other appropriate mental health teams). People with a substance use or alcohol problem are considered only if they are actively engaged with alcohol or substance use services and have completed their intervention.

How do I refer to the team?

  • Referral must come from a GP or an NHS clinician and should be made directly to the Advice and Referral Centre.
  • Please be advised we are unable to accept self referrals
  • Assessments are free of charge to patients living in the Cambridgeshire area. Those who wish to be referred from outside the Cambridgeshire area should seek referral via their GP and have funding approved from their local CCG. Patients cannot fund their own assessment.
