About the service

The Service for adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a specialist service dedicated to supporting:

  • Young people moving from children to adult services
  • Adults previously diagnosed with ADHD requesting referral back to services
  • Adults seeking a new diagnostic assessment

The team’s main base is in Wakefield, with additional community clinic sites in Pontefract, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Halifax and Barnsley.

The service is available to people in Barnsley, Kirklees and Wakefield. It is also available to people from other parts of England if funding is agreed by your local NHS Commissioner.  You can also select this Service using your Right To Choose (RTC) facility

Our team is made up of staff from a range of backgrounds, including medical, nursing, occupational therapy, psychology, social work and pharmacy.

We have established links with service user support networks, education, employment and housing services and we are able to signpost or refer individuals to appropriate community services.
