What does Adult ADHD assessment involve?

  • Before the appointment:
  1. We aim to obtain the following information from GP/other health services:
    • A ‘patient summary’ from GP surgery with a list of medical conditions and medications from the GP
    • Letters/reports from any previous contact with mental health services
 

2. We will send blank copies of the below listed rating scales/questionnaires to the patient/informant and request them to send the completed copies to us.

      • Barkley Adult ADHD rating scales – childhood and current- completed by patient and their informants (Parents/Siblings/Partner)
      • Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale
      • Background information questionnaire

3. We often ask patients to bring any school reports (to understand their behaviour in school) where available

  • During the appointment:

Consultation time: up to 120 minutes

      • Interview with patient [this includes DIVA (Diagnostic Interview for ADHD in adults) where appropriate
      • Interview with parents/siblings/partner (either face-to-face or telephone)
  • After the appointment:

Our assessment report (with treatment recommendations and follow-up arrangements) will be sent to GP (with patient consent) and a copy of the report will be sent to patient.

We are undertaking remote/online video consultations due to COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Perecherla offers online video consultations via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime, as well as telephone appointments.
