Our service

Here at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust we believe that transition should be a gradual, personal process that respects you as an individual.  We will always listen to your opinions & concerns & love it when you leave feedback.

It isn’t just about getting you moved from children’s health services to adult health services – it’s about supporting you, as you feel the need, in all aspects of your life.

To facilitate this we use a system called Ready, Steady, Go.  It’s a really simple, effective system that helps you identify areas that you might want a little more support with.  Over the whole process there are three questionnaires.  After each one we’ll see where you’re at & what you want/need by way of a little bit of extra support & then facilitate that.

Don’t worry though – we’ll not rush you – transition is a slow, gradual process during which we’ll be contactable if anything crops up.  And we’ll be here for you long after you’ve transferred to adult health services – normally until you get to around 25 years of age.

In very simple terms our job is to make your life a little easier & be that consistent face during a time of lots of change.
