Clarification: Wiltshire ADHD service

As we reported on 4 February, from 1 April 2016, the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) service delivered in Wiltshire by AWP  will be decommissioned. Please note that this change affects the Wiltshire ADHD service only. It does NOT affect the Wiltshire Autism Disgnostic Service (WADS), the rest of AWP's ADHD service, or any other service provided by AWP.

As reported on 4 February, AWP  has informed patients affected by the decision to decommission the ADHD service for Wiltshire, and the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has informed all their GPs.

AWP  has provided an ADHD  service for adults living in Wiltshire, on behalf of Wiltshire CCG, since 2014. Over the last year, Wiltshire CCG  and AWP have been reviewing the current ADHD  service. AWP  proposed a number of  new clinical service models that complied with NICE  guidelines, however at this time a decision has been taken not to extend the contract beyond 31 March.

Anyone who has concerns about how this change will affect them can speak to the Wiltshire PALS  (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) on 0300 123 2103 or their GP.
