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
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.
