Question Can anyone in the UK recommend somewhere I can get an assessment ?

I have been told that it will be at least a 12 month wait at the local NHS place.

I am happy to pay privately, has anyone got any recommendations. I live in Devon, but am prepared to travel.

Yeah the wait time sucks in the UK. I waited for about 12 months as well. Can't really complain. It's free. For private ones I'm not sure sorry. I'm sure your local GP will be able to recommend someone from your area.

Go to your GP and get advice. It is always good to have the start of this journey on their records as it will be them that in the end will write your prescription for your meds.
But be aware that some doctors still think the adults cannot have ADHD as it was and still is thought to be only present in children. We are all strong evidence to prove that wrong. So be prepared for a fight. My doctor has been very supportive so you might be lucky.
Best of luck.
