Principles of Management

Clinical Knowledge Summaries has guidelines for the diagnosis and management of ADHD.  The guidelines covers diagnosing and managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children over 3 years, young people and adults. It aims to improve the diagnosis of ADHD as well as the quality of care and support for people with ADHD.

ADHD Service

Bristol ADHD  is a specialist team of doctors, psychologists and nurses who work exclusively with adults who have ADHD. The service receives referrals from many health professionals in the south west and beyond.

Bristol ADHD can reassess and continue treatment of people who have a diagnosis of ADHD from childhood, and we also assess adults who have never had a diagnosis made.

To find out about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and support groups refer to the service's website.
