Podcast: Alternatives to Ritalin for children with ADHD

Mark Ivory investigates new guidelines discourating GPs from treating ADHD in children with prescription drugs, in the latest Ivory Tower podcast. The issue was brought into sharp focus this week, with the story of a 6-year-old with ADHD who was permanently banned from school because of his “dangerous” behaviour. Mark speaks to Anabel Unity Sale, who examines alternatives to Ritalin on the site this week.

Mark also interviews Andrew Mickel about possible models of provision for long term care in the forthcoming adult green paper.
