A mother set up an autism and ADHD clinic after her daughter did not meet NHS criteria.
Jane Lambert, who is a nurse, wanted to help other families by creating a team of specialists to diagnose and treat illnesses. It is currently a private service, but she would like it to be a public service.
Lucy Bint is the first patient diagnosed with ADHD at Jane’s Clinic. She is 22 years old and first suspected she had the condition when she was studying for a master’s degree in psychology.
Lucy was told she would have to wait two years to be diagnosed by a GP. She said: “I’m incredibly lucky that I had another way to get help. I’m just relieved that there is some level of understanding.”
