Aims To implement and evaluate a nurse-led, multi-agency drop-in clinic for young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD. Method A repeated measures observational study over 12 months exploring clinic attendance and user satisfaction, crisis management and did not attend DNA rates, consultant time spent with patients, benefits to quality of care, and service flexibility.
Results A total of 62 service users participated. Conclusion The clinic improved service accessibility and flexibility. It allowed adherence to clinical guidance, including uptake of psychosocial interventions.
There was an overwhelmingly positive improvement in service user experience. Importantly, as contact with the ADHD nurse specialists increased, this significantly reduced the amount of time consultant community paediatricians spent with service users.
