I’m a member of Benenden through work. I asked my GP for a diagnosis of ADHD. He said it had to come from a psychiatrist. He referred me but said it may take months or even years. I said I’d go through Benenden. They will step in and provide private support if NHS waiting times are unacceptable. I was seen wishing 2 weeks.

To be honest, I think the relief and progress means I’d have probably paid privately. I think that would have cost £200.
