5. What is the CCG target time for an ADHD waiting time

Adults – The CCG does not commission an ADHD service, and therefore is not in the position of being able to specify a target waiting time. All referrals are made through the CCG’s Individual Funding Request process. Once a request has been agreed, the waiting time will depend on the provider deing with the referral. Further details of the IFR process can be found at the link below.

Operating Framework for Managing Individual Funding Requests

Children and Young People  – The CCG does not commission a target time for ADHD as this is falls within the CAMHS specification which requires  the provider to work within NICE Guidance and to be compliant with the Choice and Partnership Approach (CAPA) protocols for reducing waiting times.
