We work with ADHD several diagnostic organisations who bring a range of strengths to us at Different Minds UK. It can be a difficult and lengthy process to get a diagnosis. NHS ADHD services having waiting lists over two years long, and living with undiagnosed and untreated ADHD can cause major consequences for individuals and their loved ones. The impact can range from young people being excluded from school, college or university, loss of employment to low self esteem, drug taking, relationship breakdown. Often once someone has identified that their difficulties could be down to ADHD we want and need to know and receive treatment as soon as possible.
Over the last few years private ADHD diagnostic clinics have been available throughout the UK giving people the option of paying for their treatment with much faster results.
However, not all private clinics are regulated by CQC or have appropriate insurances to practice and more commonly, some clinicians are not having a full understanding of ADHD. Private clinics often advertise that the full assessment will cost £750.00, but there are often hidden charges. They may fail to tell you that they charge £30 for just writing the prescription, then another additional cost for the actual medication which can be over £100.
You might be thinking that £130 is not very much, but how many prescriptions may need to be written? There is now several treatment options and it can take time to get the correct medication and dose. Titration should be something that is well monitored and not rushed because of money. If you are trying several different treatments how many prescriptions will need to be written and then the actual charge for the medication itself. It is also common for each face to face follow up appointment for medication titration could cost a further £180 per hour.
This is why we receiving a diagnosis through Different Minds UK. offers you an ADHD Assessment Service at affordable and flexible prices and you pay a fixed price with everything included.
Professional diagnosis fees start at £700. If you would like more information on this service please contact us via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
