    Thanks Jaykay, I have heard about Queen Elizabeth Hospital and you're the second person to say it, so worth trying then.

    I would love to hear your experiences of ADHD treatments through the government health service and the process. Do you recommend the private or public route? If public, what is the length of time between seeing a doctor/psychiatrist and getting the medication approximately? Do you feel the public service served you well?

    Grateful for any advice from experienced mums/dads out there.
    Lots of experienced parents in the Special Needs Network Hong Kong society. This is a link to their very active Facebook group, it’s for parents of sen children only btw so you can speak candidly also about any concerns or questions you might have regarding schools, therapists and doctors etc.
