Ready Steady Go

In healthcare, the word transition is used to describe the process of preparing, planning and moving from children’s to adult services. We understand that moving away from a team of doctors and nurses 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, the NHS have developed the Ready Steady Go transition programme.
