Shortage of Medicines for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Your local pharmacy, General Practitioner (GP) and ADHD service work hard to make sure you get the medicines you need, when you need them, but sometimes we experience difficulties in sourcing medicines. Unfortunately, there is a national shortage of many of the medicines we use in ADHD because of increased global demand and manufacturing problems. You can find further information for patients, families and carers on this page.

The Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Service provides an assessment and treatment service for adults who are experiencing difficulty with symptoms of ADHD.  The team is made up of a number of health care professionals.

Who is the Adult ADHD Service for?

The Adult ADHD Service is for men and women over the age of 18 years who have GPs in Northumberland, North Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and South Tyneside and require a period of assessment and treatment.

For patients who are registered in North Cumbria assessments and reviews are provided by Psychiatry UK

Any new requests for assessments for North Cumbria GP registered patients will continue to be managed within the current process by request to the Mental Health commissioning panel, currently hosted by North Cumbria CCG. Email: [email protected]

How can I get referred?

Your GP or another health professional can refer you for assessment if they think that you may be experiencing ADHD by writing to us.
