Just like growing up, moving from paediatric to adult services doesn’t happen overnight. It is a gradual process of planning, transferring and settling in with the new team. In healthcare, we call this process ‘transition’. 

Transition is not just about the move to adult services. It is also about enabling you to become more independent by understanding how to manage your own health and wellbeing. 

Our aim is to establish a safe, effective, and seamless transition to adult services for all young people with cancer. You can learn more about this by reading our Principles of Practice for transition.
