Community Children's ADHD Team

The ADHD Pathway brings together health and education to ensure that  all families receive the best possible care from the time that a diagnosis is made, through to the delivery of treatment.

Within the ADHD pathway there is input from the Community Paediatricians, we have 3 Community Childrens's ADHD Nurses and an ADHD Nurse Specialist.  There is input from Clinical Psychology and also Psychiatry.  Most children and young people will have their assessment and treatment by the Community Paediatricians at Level 2. Your child may also have some input from Level 3, depending on their individual needs.
