Providers include the following:
ADHD360 – ADHD360 are accepting referrals.
Dr J & Colleagues – Dr J & Colleagues are accepting referrals.
Problem Shared – Problem shared are accepting referrals.
Psychiatry-UK – Psychiatry UK are now accepting referrals again but we are receiving reports that waiting times are at least 12 months currently.
Clinical Partners – Clinical Partners can accept referrals for diagnosis but are not able to provide titration at this time.
