Transition between children's and adult health services

Transition healthcare plan

Children with complex health needs should have a transition healthcare plan. The healthcare plan should include information to help plan your young person’s transition to adult life. This information should include:

  • The health support your child needs. This includes in hospital, school, home, employment and when they are in the community
  • How your child will receive health support
  • The key professionals who are involved in planning your young person’s transfer between children’s and adult health services
  • Those responsible for delivering your young person’s health care support when they become an adult
  • How your child is supported to manage their own medical condition
  • The plans that have been made for your young person to meet all new staff, so they feel safe and confident with their new arrangements
