Who can legally diagnose ADHD in the UK?

Had a 90 minute assessment for ADHD a few days ago at the Maudsley Hospital (London), with a "Neurodevelopmental Specialist" and they said I will see a psychiatrist in a few weeks time.

I don't understand why I would have an in-depth assessment with someone that can't diagnose, and then only to have m repeat the same questions/answers with a psychiatrist.

Just asking if anyone knows, can this person legally diagnose me with ADHD in the UK?
Or perhaps someone that has been with Maudsley Hospital, run me through the next steps?
