AYM responds to the NICE consultation on ADHD

AYM has suggested to NICE that young people who offend should be included as a priority recognition group for ADHD, in addition to the existing young people in the secure estate group. We stressed the need to ensure appointments are not withdrawn for non-compliance, as the complex needs of such young people should be the priority. We reminded NICE of seconded health staff and their role in supporting both young people and other health professionals in delivering services effectively. Finally, we reminded NICE that their broad age groupings do not allow for the wide range of child development presented by young people.
