(Kindly note that many people now a days read or self-test online and that is not necessarily ADHD. The assessments are done to gather as much information as is possible. Whether or not a diagnosis of ADHD is given is based on all the information, QbCheck and DIVA-5, which is the NICE and UKAAN recommended diagnostic interview for Adults with ADHD. This means that following assessment, it is also possible that a diagnosis of ADHD is NOT given. The assessment process involves making sense of a lot of information and there may be another condition that may need further assessment and Dr Sakhuja can advise accordingly)
