There is a national shortage of the medication prescribed to help manage ADHD symptoms that is likely to last until the end of the year.  We are sharing an information leaflet to support people who are prescribed ADHD medicine.

If you are trying to get your medicines, please contact your community pharmacy first to see if they have supplies and if you cannot obtain your prescription from your usual pharmacy, please try other pharmacies in your local area.

If you have read the leaflet and need more support, your usual healthcare team can help you manage any changes in your symptoms:

  • If you usually get your ADHD medication on a repeat prescription, please contact your GP practice.
  • If you get your prescriptions from a service at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust (BDCT) such as child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), the adult ADHD service, Bradford and Airedale neurodevelopmental service (BANDS), or learning disability services, please call 01274 256131.
