Hello
I’m in the UK and situation is pretty stark. I got a private diagnosis and medication privately and tried to move it to the NHS so I could get the medication on prescription. I am in london and the local health trust basically said the waiting list is so long there is no point in us putting you on it, essentially they said “we’ll get back to you”.

My GP also didnt have a clue as most dont with ADHD and ASD. I wish I could give you better news. You might want to try the ADHD foundation, https://www.adhdfoundation.org.uk/
and ask them.

Rgds
