Re: Adult and Child ADHD Assessment Centres in UK

I've read an NHS report called "ADHD Services over Scotland" dated March 2007. On page 17 it says

"there are no dedicated services for adults with ADHD in Scotland, although two NHS board areas do have adult
psychiatrists with a special interest and some of the other NHS boards reported emerging interest within adult psychiatry and general practice."

Looking through the remainder of the document it seems that the following areas in Scotland have an interest in adult adhd:

NHS Borders
NHS Dumfries & Galloway
NHS Fife (a consultant psychiatrist in Levenmouth is planning an adult service, March 2007)
NHS Forth Valley
NHS Tayside

Note that this report is a year old so it's possible that the situation may have improved somewhat.
