Transition from paediatric to adult health services study

Views are being sought on how care is delivered when young people transition from child to adult health services.

The National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) are starting a review of the situation nationally.

Transition between children’s and adults’ services is one of three priority areas for the new Child Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme.

Data will be collected via focus groups and online surveys to understand the experiences of patients and their carers; and via a qualitative assessment of clinical and organisational care using semi‐structured questionnaires and multidisciplinary peer reviews.

If you have any strong views on this topic, or any experiences you would like to share, email transition@ncepod.org.uk before the 13 November to be involved.
