The Face of ADHD in Men

ADHD is a commonly diagnosed developmental disorder in children in the UK, and in up to half of cases, the symptoms can persist into adulthood, making ADHD for Adults an important area of concern. However, with appropriate management and support, individuals with ADHD can lead fulfilling lives as adults.

There are Three Recognised Types of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD in Men:

1) Combination Type – Symptoms of both criteria inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity were present for the past 6 months

2) Inattentive Type – Symptoms of inattention, but not hyperactivity-impulsivity, were present for the past six months (Previously called ADD – Attention Deficit Disorder).

3) Hyperactive/Impulsive Type – Symptoms of hyperactivity-impulsivity but not inattention were present for the past six months.

The first step in successfully treating ADHD is recognising that you have it.

Transferring your care back to the NHS

man having a consultation


If you choose to go on medication, once you are on a stable regime, then if you wish, we can set up a Shared Care Agreement with your GP so that they can take over the prescribing of any medication that may be indicated in your treatment plan. We have standard protocol documents for this procedure. This would mean that your prescription would then become an NHS prescription and therefore charged at their standard rate. Please note we cannot guarantee a Shared Care arrangement with your GP. We would encourage you to discuss your plans for a Shared Care Agreement with your GP before you commence on treatment with the ADHD centre, so that they are informed and involved early on.
