In the last 12 months , 1,664 tests have been completed in our region equating to cash-releasing savings of £ 570,752 .
The Yorkshire & Humber AHSN has provided project management support and funding to help the spread of this exciting programme which has subsequently won two HSJ awards , including the HSJ Mental Health Partnership Award in March 2022 .
We are incredibly proud of the work we have done in this last year to enable a more rapid diagnosis for children with ADHD , ensuring patients with eating disorders are being treated early through the FREED programme , as well as working with stakeholders from across the region to transform mental health services and care for the entire Yorkshire and Humber population .

“ Mark ( Yorkshire & Humber AHSN ), Jo ( Qbtech ) and the team have been an invaluable help in our team ’ s QbTest journey so far . Nothing has been too much trouble ; all our questions have been answered in detail and they have taken the time to speak to our clinical staff to explain the objective assessment .

As we move towards implementation , I feel assured that we ’ re in good hands . The test itself is an excellent tool and I know our clinicians are excited to have it in their repertoire . I feel that QbTest is going to improve our ADHD pathway and enhance patient experience .”
