Transition to adult health services

Transition is the process of planning, preparing and moving from children’s health care to adult health care.

The process should start at around 12 years of age but will depend on individual circumstances.

The integrated care pathway incorporates the details and information required for this patient journey with specific activities and variance tracking, comparing planned and actual care.

It is designed for use by the individual young person’s designated transition co-ordinator and identified transition key workers. Other members of the care team may refer to the pathway as a guide to the young person’s progress through the transition process.
