Transition from children’s to adults’ services (NG43)
This NICE guideline covers the period before, during and after a young person moves from children’s services to adults’ services. It aims to help young people and their carers have a better experience of transition by improving the way it’s planned and carried out. It covers both health and social care.
Service users have a right to be involved in their care, which should be appropriate for their needs.
The recommendations for the guidance include:
- Overarching principles for good transition
- Planning transition
- Support before and after transfer
- The supporting infrastructure for transition
