Elizabeth Brandill - Kingston CCG

The video is now available of our Talk on Wed June 21 by Elizabeth (Brandill) Pepper, Lead Commissioner for Children’s Services, for Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and Kingston Clinical Commissioning Group. She explains why the CCGs are asking support groups for their opinions following the SW London NHS Trust prompting a debate about the future of ADHD & ASD diagnosis criteria.

Here are the 6 short questions for you to answer for the Richmond & Kingston Clinical Commissioning Groups about any possible changes to the ADHD & Autism criteria for diagnosis from next April. Complete this ADHD Diagnosis question sheet & then email to communications@adhdrichmond.org

This is your opportunity to be part of making the ADHD provision better in the two Boroughs. Please complete the questions asap. Here’s the Richmond CCG statement about the CAMHS service

July 20:   Parent/Carers in Richmond and Kingston are offered free access to a 2 hour post-diagnosis information session which runs every month for a maximum of 5 people so parents have time for discussing personal situations confidently as well as covering the material. We are receiving nothing but praise and gratitude. Here are a few examples:

“We found the session with you most informative, supportive and reassuring.

“Perfect training. So helpful. I now feel fully informed to talk to the school SENCO and discuss what adjustments my son may need to reach his potential. Thank you, I feel empowered”

“Now I understand SEN Code of Practice and what that means for my daughter. Useful contacts and videos were given. I now feel I have help chasing up the report of my daughters formal diagnosis. Also I feel more positive and understood just chatting to others and being told its normal adhd behaviour. “

Come and get some great advice from this ADHD Richmond & @NHS England post-diagnosis session for parents/carers. If your child has recently had a diagnosis you will benefit greatly from attending one of these meetings. These post-diagnosis information sessions are open to‏ Richmond AND Kingston parents  Our ADHD advisor, Val Ivens, runs them. Book your FREE place via info@adhdrichmond.org

You may donate if you wish
