This practice is not able to provide comprehensive NHS services for adults with ADHD

National guidance expects long-term involvement of specialists in reviewing these patients and their medical treatment, but this does not currently happen in Oxfordshire.

Therefore, in line with county-wide safety recommendations, the practice has taken the difficult decision that any requests from specialists, both NHS and private, to prescribe ADHD medications to adult patients, will be declined. Also, we will no longer be able to supply ADHD medicines safely to adult patients who have obtained these medicines from the practice in the past. We will be making this clear to providers of ADHD services, at the point we refer patients for a diagnostic assessment.

Care of adults already receiving ADHD treatments remains under careful review. Patients may be able to access the care they need outside of the NHS, for instance by seeking a referral to a private provider from their NHS GP or NHS specialist. As your NHS GP, we will not enter into “shared care” arrangements with private providers.

The practice feels strongly that patients should not be left without the care they need, due to a lack of comprehensive NHS funding, and our local representatives have raised this issue with local funding and decision-making groups. By taking this stand with other Oxfordshire GP practices we hope that a safe service will be funded. 

If you also wish to raise this issue, please contact the “planned care team” at BOB ICB, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and/or your MP.

Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with respect.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similary way.

We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour againist any of our staff or patients. if a patient is violent or abusive, they will be asked to stop. if they persist, we may exercise our rights to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary from our pratice list.

The practice considers thratening behaviour to be:

Attempted or actual aggressive threatening physical actions made towards any member of staff.
The use of aggressive, threatening or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing and cursing, shouting) which threatens or intimidates staff.
In line with the rest of the NHS, and to ensure this is fully observed we have a Zero Tolerance policy in place, whereby any aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Anyone giving verbal abuse to members of the staff will be sent a letter from the Practice stating that this behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the removal from the Practice patient list. There will be no appeal process.

We hope that you will understand and welcome this policy which is in place for the best interest of our hard working staff as well as our patients.
