ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

ADHD – Adult

Please complete this form if you think that you may have the condition ADHD. It takes around 20 minutes to complete so we advise you set aside this time in advance of starting the form.

On Completion. We will assess your likelihood of ADHD and book you for a GP consultation to discuss it. There are two outcomes:

  1. We do not think you have ADHD.
  2. You are likely to have ADHD. We will refer you to the Adult Mental Health Team. Unfortunately there is currently a waiting list for this specialty of around 2 years. In the meantime it is recommended you download and read the useful
    ADHD Self Help Resource Pack

The Form. Made of FOUR parts:

  1. Your Details
  2. Your Symptoms
  3. The ASRS test (a test for ADHD)
  4. The WEISS test (a ‘how badly it affects you’ test)
This review works well on mobile but it is easier on a computer.
A diagnosis of ADHD will not be considered if you drink more than 30 units of alcohol per week or take regular recreational drugs (including cannibis)
