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.

timharvardsweeting: I was diagnosed aged 45, after a typical ADHD rollercoaster of a life. I am now a psychotherapist and coach working with ADHD adults. I'm also an advocate for ADHD in the workplace- helping companies to undwerstand that ADHD is not to be feared/ fired.

lepetitprince: so, the most acute issue I’m facing is my social worker and CMHT not referring me for an advocate which I desperately need to challenge a court ruling to evict me from my council home despite being v ill. This was at the request of the TMO
