Who we are

We are a nurse led service of specialist nurses who can assess and prescribe medications in relation to ADHD. 

What we do

We monitor all children who are currently taking ADHD medications at least every 6 months. 

We provide an assessment service for young people referred between the ages of 6 and their 11th birthday. 

In addition, our nurses can provide support and advice and make referrals or signpost you to other services that may be beneficial. 

How do I access the service?

Parents and Schools concerns about their children or young person with developmental behaviour should refer to the school nurse who will complete an assessment and they will decide on referral into appropriate pathway.

 

All referral forms should be completed and forwarded to medch.childrenscommunity@nhs.net
