Transferring to Adult Services
Each of our different services for young people has what we call a 'transition plan'. This means that we help you prepare for when you will transfer over to be looked after by our adult services team. Depending on your condition or illness, the age when you transfer can vary.
However, we will do everything we can to help make eth move as smooth as possible fro you. This may involve taking you to meet the adult services team who will be looking after you, setting up initial appointments for you and sorting out all the paperwork for you. Some departments also have joint clinics with adult services, so you may continue to see some of the same staff in clinics or when you come into hospital.
If you have questions or worries, do please ask the staff looking after you and they will be very glad to give you as much information as possible.
