Transition is when a young person moves from children’s to adult services.
Up until you are 18 you will have been seen by a specialist children’s doctor (paediatrician).
When you reach 18 you will be seen in an adult clinic and if you need to come into hospital you will be admitted to an adult ward.

Mencap have produced a short film with Bradford People First that shows the differences you can expect in hospital as a young adult. It is aimed at young people with a learning disability and can be shared with family, friends, carers and hospital staff.
