Modality LLP has offered a specialist-led Adult ADHD service to patients since April 2020.
Access to the service is by direct referral from GPs (and in some cases from local mental health services) in these areas.
When we book an appointment, we will send out self-rating information for patients to complete.
We will then arrange a day and time for a video consultation using Zoom. We started offering Zoom because of the COVID lockdown, but it's been a big success and has proved to be really convenient and popular with our patients. For some people, it may be impossible to use Zoom - we can arrange face-to-face consultations when required.
An assessment usually takes about 90 minutes. We ask, whenever possible, that someone who knows the patient very well attends the consultation too - it's extremely helpful to have a relative or close friend available to help provide their perspective. Assessment will involve a very detailed discussion of the history of any symptoms. This will enable our clinician to make a decision on the best treatment to offer. We can prescribe medication, and also provide advice on practical steps to take to help reduce the impact of ADHD.
We then usually offer up to three further Zoom appointments to review how well the treatments are working - although sometimes more appointments may be required. Once settled on treatment that is suitable, we transfer care back to their own GPs for annual blood pressure and weight checks. For certain patients, we may continue to provide an annual review of ADHD treatment.
