If your child goes onto 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 Share Care arrangement with your GP.
We would encourage you to discuss your plans for a Share Care agreement with your GP before you commence on treatment with the ADHD centre, so that they are informed and involved early on.
To set up Share Care with your GP, we will need to share your clinic letters with your GP, however, you will be given a chance to review these letters and if appropriate have any particular personal information removed that is not pertinent to your ADHD diagnosis and treatment.
