What is transition?

Make a referral

In healthcare, we use the word 'transition' to describe the process of moving on from children's health care to adult health care.

Transition is a gradual process, and you and your family will be involved in the planning and preparation for this move.

The exact timing for transition from children's to adolescent services varies from person to person, but the majority of young people move when they are aged between 16 and 18 years.
