Welcome to The Patient Journey at ADHD 360
We understand that embarking on the journey towards understanding and managing ADHD can feel overwhelming and at times, uncertain.
Our patient journey has been carefully designed to provide a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to diagnosing, treating, and supporting individuals with ADHD.
Stage 1: Registration
The first part of the patient journey is for the patient or advocate to complete a new registration via our online portal, Chrysalis.
You’ll be asked to fill in the below forms and questionnaires.
- Medical history
- ADHD screening
- Substance use risk assessment
- Current observations (blood pressure, pulse, height & weight)
As a result of this initial process, you will be provided with a screening indication of whether you have ADHD or not.
Stage 2: Booking an assessment
If you receieve a positive screening of ADHD, you will be prompted to pay an initial non-refundable booking fee. Paying this fee will allow you to book an official ADHD Diagnosis assessment.
Once you’ve paid the reservation fee, our booking system will allow you to book an assessment from our next available appointments. You’ll also be requested to fill in some additional information before your appointment.
Stage 3: The Assessment
Internationally validated questionnaires are used to help assess you, and if you meet the diagnostic criteria you will Receive an ADHD diagnosis. We assess what form of ADHD treatment would be the best medicine, coaching or counselling. If ADHD Medicine is the best option, we work with you to find the right ADHD medication and dosage.
Stage 4: Treatment package
For private patients, we have two levels of treatment packages to choose from; Gold treatment package and the Platinum treatment package.
The difference between the two is: The platinum package includes an allowance of 2-3 hours of our time for additional letter writing or liasing with schools where required.
Stage 5: Follow ups
During your titration period, your clinician will provide regular follow ups as part of our optimisation process.
We keep in touch, usually every 3 weeks, over the phone to make sure you’re on track, but our ADHD specialists are available via email when you need them.
We will work with you to ensure your ADHD treatment is personalised and optimised for you. ADHD Treatment is not a one size fits all solution, so it’s important that we get it right for you.
Stage 6: Stable & Optimised
‘Titration’ is the process of finding the optimal amount of medication for you. Once you and your clinician are satisfied with your treatment plan, we progress you through to the ‘stable and optimised’ stage. To evidence your stable state, we request that you perform your original screening again to compare the difference of before and after.
Stage 7: Reviews & Ongoing Care
After optimisation, we don’t just part ways with our patients. We’re to provide support if you need it and schedule annual reviews to ensure everything is still optimised.
Finally, we write to your GP and see if they can take over prescribing long term. This is known as Shared Care.
Before you know it, you’re at your treatment anniversary ready to sign on for year 2 and beyond!
