Thank you again JDE – £200 sounds remarkably good – I’ve seen £300 to £700 for a private assessment, pus ongoing costs. Have been referred separatately by my GP and an NHS psychiatrist to two different NHS ADHD clinics, one saying 4-6 months for an appointment, the other own as yet (though obviously I’ll only go to one of them), but am very tempted just to pay to get treated in the interim – I’ve wasted too much of my life thinking it was just me, realising recently that the symptoms of ADHD (the inattentive ADD variety) fit me to a ‘t’. It is a blessed relief realising that, and will be an even more blessed relief to get on with life after a proper (I hope!) assessment and treatment.
