Transition and moving to adult services
Ready Steady Go Programme
Transition to adult care: Ready Steady Go
In healthcare, we use the word ‘transition’ to describe the process of preparing, planning and moving from children’s to adult services.
Moving away from a team of doctors and nurses that you have been with for many years can be scary, but by getting involved in the transition process, you can feel more confident and happier about the move.
The Ready Steady Go
transition programme has been locally developed to help support you throughout
this process. Ask your doctor about it, or check it out online here.
A young person’s guide to transition.
This guide explains what happens when young people receiving help from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are reaching an age when they need to move on from CAMHS to adult services. This is often called ‘transition’. This guide from YoungMinds explains what should happen during transition, and who should be involved in helping you get the support that you need.
