Private Providers

A message from Dr Clegg and Dr Spruce:

“We have received an increasing number of requests from private providers to issue treatment. These tend to be in relation to gender incongruence, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder. Understandably due to the long wait times for these diagnostic pathways. We would recommend you do some research when picking the provider. Often these companies are not based in the UK and are not registered with the care quality commission who are required to oversee care in the UK. It is less likely we will be able to support diagnostic decisions or prescribing from providers not registered with the CQC.”
