They were very helpful and said the best route is to get your doctor to refer you to a psychiatrist and then ask the psychiatrist to refer you to one of theese two specialist centres. I am currently awaiting my psychiatrist appointment and hope to gain a referral to The Maudsley adult ADHD unit. These two units they seem to refer to as the most capable of dealing with all the unique aspects of adult ADHD. Em
