The Clinical Partners service was professional and very thorough and provided me with all the information I needed to know if an ADHD assessment was the right thing for Milo. We knew we would need to wait several months to be seen by our local NHS service, but wanted to get answers sooner so we could get the right support in place for Milo. The Clinician was excellent at helping us understand ADHD and we felt we were given all the information in terms of Milo’s treatment plan.
Finding out Abigail had ADHD was a relief – we always knew there was something different but it suddenly all made sense. Abigail has responded well to her treatment and is a much happier child, she is doing better at school and home is a calmer place! Thank you for all the advice you gave us.
Dr Rajput was very friendly which helped put me at ease a little. It was a relief to put a name (ADHD) to what was wrong with my son and to get him on the medication he should have been on for years. Thank you to all the staff at clinical partners, the admin staff were very supportive throughout the whole process. I would definitely point others with the same problem in the direction of Clinical Partners.
Josh started becoming more and more withdrawn – at first we thought it was just part of being a teenager, but things didn’t improve and it began to badly affect his school work and social life. It felt like we had lost our son. Taking Josh to see a Psychiatrist wasn’t an easy step – we were very nervous that we had somehow failed him. However, the Psychiatrist was really friendly and made us all feel at ease – it took all the ‘sting’ out of an incredibly worrying few years and I just wish we had sought help earlier.
