Transition in healthcare describes the process of preparing, planning and moving from children’s to adult services.

The NHS Youth Forum believes everyone working with young people in health settings must recognise the need for a planned and supported transition process for young people as they move from child centred to adult services.

The NHS Youth Forum have come up with questions that they think are important for everyone to ask, and keep asking, healthcare professionals and decision makers about what they are doing to improve transition for young people.

We continue to work with NHS England to support this work as part of a commitment to this in the Long Term Plan that was published in January 2019.
