Health transitions

Adolescence can be a time of major transition and upheaval for young people. One of the biggest disruptions and upheavals can be in making the move from Children's Social Care and Health Services to Adult Social Care and Health Services.

The Department of Health defines transition as: "The purposeful, planned process that addresses the medical, psychological and educational/vocational needs of young people and young adults with chronic physical and medical conditions as they move from child-centred to adult-oriented healthcare systems".

In this section, we try to give you all the necessary information you will need in order to minimize the disruptions that can happen during these changes in services and contacts to speak to people if you, or someone close to you, are worried that things are not staying on course.
