In 2011, Rob developed and launched the first Leeds NHS Adult ADHD service, and was clinical lead until 2022. During this time, he led a successful service and has not only gained a reputation for his expertise and clinical skills, but also for his passion and commitment to raising awareness of ADHD across social media and in local and national newspaper and magazine publications. He has also provided regular ADHD training across healthcare settings and also other areas including the criminal justice system.
Rob worked part-time in private practice alongside his NHS work from 2012, before taking the decision in 2022 to work solely in private practice in Leeds, Yorkshire.

As well as his expertise in prescribing medication according to the latest evidence, he has developed skills in both ADHD coaching and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Rob sees ACT as an effective therapy that can help individuals manage the challenges of living with ADHD and/or other mental health difficulties more effectively and at the same time support them to create a rich and meaningful values-based life.

A GP referral letter is not necessary but is recommended. It is advisable to speak to your GP before a referral, especially if medication is likely to be an option if a diagnosis is confirmed to explore whether the GP will be agreeable to ongoing prescribing once medication is stabilised.
