Transition to adult services

How do we ensure high quality care for young people as they move from children's to adult's health services? We bring together best practice examples, resources and experiences of young people.
We highlight examples of good practice of effective transition from hospitals, clinics, charities and statutory bodies across the UK.
We look at five key determinants - from developing a person-centric plan to involving young people and their families - and specific conditions.
