You Said We Did - Transitions To Adult Healthcare

You Said

We Did

That you or your child did not receive adequate information about transition to adult health services.


The Local Offer and Preparing for Adulthood protocol have been updated with more information about transitions from paediatric to adult health services under “Preparing for Adulthood”.


Embedding transitions into the commissioning cycle of new services, ensuring that providers have a transition policy and address transitions with young people receiving their service.

We need to make improvements to the experience of transition.

Improve the process for internal transitions tracking, with a group with representation from health, social care and education, both children’s and adult services to ensure best practice is adhered to in transition and resolve complex cases that require escalation.

Having someone you can contact to ask about transitions in health services is important to you.

Improved links between Paediatricians and GPs in transition and the role of GPs in transition, including work to increase uptake of annual health checks with the GP for people with learning disabilities over the age of 14.
