Once upon a time....a few of years ago, a group of professional workers and a group of dedicated parents got together because it was felt that Newcastle Upon Tyne needed a Carepathway for ADHD.
Everyone worked well together, the worked proceeded with great gusto and a draft Carepathway was written, this was sent to the Comissioners and eventually passed but alas the bad fairy waved her wand and no money was allotted to fund it, but one of the recomendations that came from the Carepathway was that an ADHD Lead Officer was needed.
The good fairy waved her wand and that piece of work was awarded 2 lovely awards at a glittering ceremony, but alas again the bad fairy waved her wand and now that Draft Carepathway is lying on a desk somewhere in a dark forest forgotten for how long we do not know....
Please everyone wish for the good fairy to wave her magic wand once again, she has the money there to pay the Lead Officer but she hasn't the strength to wave her wand to get HR to work on the paperwork in front of them.
Walk a day in our shoes and you will realise the Carepathway for ADHD is needed.
