Fees – Explained

In the majority of cases, you will need a full one hour assessment. This will cost you £360.00 which is payable in advance. This cost will include a written opinion or assessment letter and/or a suggested treatment plan and a formal diagnosis where indicated.

There may be additional fees payable after the assessment, for which you will receive an invoice: for example, for the costs for prescribing medication agreed between you and the psychiatrist at the time of assessment.

You could also be charged, by the minute, for any extra time spent in the consultation if the meeting runs over one hour, but this is at the discretion of the doctor.

For children or adolescents, there is always an initial 30 minute assessment consultation for the child’s parent or guardian along with a letter setting out a proposed plan for which we charge £200.00 – this is also payable in advance. An estimate of the likely cost of any proposed treatment plan is then provided after that initial discussion. You can read more about the treatment of children here.

NHS Funding

You should, in theory, be able to exercise your right to choice to have an appointment with us as we are a CQC registered provider of services to the NHS. Unfortunately, the current guidelines are that that choice is limited to providers who already have contracts to supply the service you are seeking.

Psychiatry-UK has contracts to provide NHS-funded Adult ADHD assessments and treatment in England.

If you would like to approach your GP and to ask him or her to support an application to get NHS funding, we would be happy to discuss this with your GP and help in making such an application.

* Although we will aim to complete your assessment in the initial one hour appointment, sometimes it will take longer to allow a full exploration of your symptoms and history in order to make an accurate diagnosis.  You can help the consultant by completing all paperwork and questionnaires that you are sent in advance, and by being clear what questions you want to be answered during the appointment. Additional time spent with the psychiatrist is charged at £180 for every further 30 minutes or £6 per minute as outlined in the charges above.

**​ Does not include treatment or titration. See the Processes and Costs section on this page for more information.

*** Most adults become stable on treatment within 4-8 weeks.  If a change of medication is needed due to side effects or it not being clinically effective,  titration can take up to 12 weeks.  Children are more likely to take 3 months on average to complete titration.

**** If you would like to discuss booking a child or adolescent initial consultation, please call our Support Team on 0330 124 1980 (available 8am-8pm weekdays). This cannot be booked through our online booking form.

++ Minimum fee required as a deposit for Perinatal and Alcohol/Substance misuse consultations.

Recent Patient Reviews

I want to say THANK YOU…

I want to thank Psychiatry UK for firstly existing and secondly for continuing to provide an amazing service, despite clearly being an over-stretched service at this time. It is clear to me from the number of people being referred as adults that misdiagnosis, especially in females, is common and that the Government needs to be providing more options for timely referrals and diagnoses, with more education around what inattentive ADHD means. It has taken me to the age of 32 to accept that my brain is different and to reach for support for it. Being highly intelligent in some areas of life probably was the thing that meant people overlooked my scatty behaviour and inability to organise things without losing stuff or forgetting key things etc etc. Dr Bindman, despite being clearly restricted by time, was professional and empathic, providing reassurance whilst actively listening. I am only at the beginning of the treatment journey so i cannot comment further than the diagnosis, but I want to say THANK YOU.
