Oxford ADHD Centre acquired by Clinical Partners

Leading mental health treatment provider Clinical Partners Limited has completed the acquisition of Oxford ADHD & Autism Centre (“Oxford ADHD”).

Clinical Partners is one of the UK’s largest independent providers of mental health, autism, and ADHD services both for the NHS and private sectors. With a nationwide workforce of over 400, Clinical Partners supports approximately 40,000 patients annually. The company is growing rapidly, and this acquisition underlines its commitment to enhancing its capacity to serve as many people as possible.

Founded in 2015 by Dr Polly Branney, Oxford ADHD & Autism Centre specialises in diagnosing and supporting children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders and related conditions. The business has a workforce of 40 specialist staff who will join Clinical Partners.

Clinical Partners Chief Medical Officer Dr Alice Parshall said, “We are delighted to welcome colleagues from the Oxford ADHD Centre to Clinical Partners. Polly and her team have established a reputation as a trusted and high-quality provider in the Oxford area, and we share a commitment to delivering safe and effective services. We’re looking forward to working together and using our combined experience and expertise to further develop our services for patients and families.”


Oxford ADHD & Autism Centre’s Dr Polly Branney commented, “I set the clinic up eight years ago after experiencing a big care gap in local provision for an increased number of autism and ADHD referrals. Since then, we have treated over 3000 patients and partnered with a number of NHS services to help both adults and children access expert support.

“As a small independent clinic facing rising demand, it became clear that we could be more effective if we were part of a bigger group organisation who will invest in growth and training. Clinical Partners is the perfect fit for us, and I wish everyone well on the next chapter of Oxford ADHD’s mission.”


Clinical Partners’ acquisition for the entire share capital of Oxford ADHD was completed on June 20 2023 for an undisclosed sum. Oxford ADHD was advised by CapEQ (M&A) with legal advice from Freeths. Clinical Partners was advised by Keystone Law (legal).


CapEQ Director Mark Sapsford added: “Mental health support access is critical in today’s world, and we are proud to have been able to complete this transaction. We wish both parties the best of luck in combining the businesses to provide even more effective support and treatment in the Thames Valley and beyond.”


Freeths partner Malin Svanberg Larsson commended: “We are delighted to have been able to help Polly and the Oxford ADHD team deliver this transaction. We wish both parties every success as they continue to provide invaluable mental health support to patients across the NHS and the private sector.”
