Letting you know that I think very highly of Psychiatry UK. It's an online-based service. I saw a psychiatrist over a skype-type video call. I was already diagnosed but had issues with my medication and am on other things as well. I was titrated by an Advanced Nurse Practitioner via email contact (who I happened to know as the ANP also worked for the Lancashire adult Adhd service). I don't know if she also would have done appointments over video calling otherwise or not, but the email service worked very well for me and for them! I was posted an automatic blood pressure machine which also measures your pulse. It came with a self-addressed pre-paid envelope to send it back in when Titration has finished. I added measurements to my emails when requested.
The whole of Cumbria now uses Psychiatry UK for their adult Adhd services and they are working through the backlog after a long time without one and hiccups during setting it up. I believe they're a private psychiatric service that got the contract for Cumbria. I have no idea how much their rates are if you're going private, or what tests they do for diagnosis.
I get my prescription through registered post, so I take it to the pharmacy myself. Initially they'd have it organised so that you could just go to the pharmacy after a certain date and the medication would be ready and waiting, but that's just recently changed for reasons I don't know.
I got myself a Pre-paid Prescription Certificate (search for NHS PPC in your favoured search engine) so I pay £10.40 every month for 10 months out of the 12 in the year. Unless you move house or any of your other details change, it automatically renews every year.

The Care Quality Commission inspected this organisation on 25 April 2018 and gave it an overall rating of 'requires improvement.'
The CQC's inspection is based on 5 questions as well as an inspection of the community-based services provided for working age adults.
Here's the list of results:
1. Are services safe? Requires improvement
2. Are services effective? Requires improvement
3. Are services caring? Good
4. Are services responsive? Good
5. Are services well-led? Requires improvement
6. Community-based mental health services for adults of working age: Requires improvement
The CQC gave them a list of the legal requirements that are not being met, and the group then had to send the CQC a report saying what action they will take to ensure they meet their legal requirements.
I didn't find the group's response to the CQC inspection, but that doesn't mean they haven't done it.
vagueandrandom: The ADDUK website is very out of date. What kind of help/support are you looking for in London? fromtheblock

fromtheblock: Is this an NHS site...? most state run websites seem almost deliberately awful don't they? Almost like the purpose is to create a fake veneer that a service exists, but when one scratches the surface, the whole thing collapses. And why am I 'shouting as'

fromtheblock: Out of 5 of the London contacts on the ADDUK site for help/support, 2 links go no where or to wrong place, and another has come back as a wrong email address. So I guess I will go with the only person I could contact then yeah??!!

fromtheblock: No offense but this website is a freakin' mess!! even for mainstream people, let alone ADD peoples. 2 of the help contacts (London area) are useless as they have completely wrong links to them. One goes to a website for a restaurant. WTH!!!

jp: Hope you are OK too? Pressured out because of ADHD? They don't get you? Or you're a threat somehow? Sorry whatever the source of the pressure!

jp: yes - i'm fine thanks :-) he was definitely cluster B, and if it weren't for impulsiveness i might still be being abused!

vagueandrandom: Oh no jp I hope you’re ok. I’m being pressured out of my job because of ADHD, although they’re careful not to make it overt. . .they keep on about supporting me so I can reach standards although they’ve not had a problem for the past 2 years.
