Young adults and adolescents transition project

As part of the Future Hospital Programme, the Young adults and adolescents transition project aims to improve the quality of care for young adults and adolescents with long-term and complex conditions as they transition from paediatric to adult services.

What we are doing

The project reviewed the current state of transition services within adult physician specialties, raise awareness of the issues related to caring for young adult and adolescent patients, and support RCP members and fellows to deliver high-quality, developmentally-appropriate care for these patients.

If you would like to share you experiences of good practice in transitional and acute care for young adults and adolescents, please get in touch using the 'Tell us your story' form.
