Transition to adult care: Ready Steady Go                                  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.

We understand that moving away from a team of professionals that you have been with for many years can be scary but hopefully, by getting involved in the transition process, you will feel more confident and happier about the move.

To support you through transition, we are implementing the Ready Steady Go transition programme. The programme was developed by University Hospital Southampton and are using it with their permission.
