The Young People’s Health Transitional Service facilitates and coordinates the transition process from children’s to adult services for young people with complex physical health or life-limiting conditions in Hertfordshire aged 14 to 21 years. The service aims to meet the young person’s needs and values the importance of each young person being given the opportunity to meet their full potential.
The service consists of two Transition Nurse Coordinators and an administrator.
Every young person will have a named Transition Nurse Coordinator to ensure continuity of care. They will facilitate and coordinate a holistic, person centred approach to ensure transition planning is undertaken including; healthcare, social care, education, community living, employment and leisure activities.
Young people who have been in residential schools outside of Hertfordshire, have had their transition process supported by the Transition Nurse Coordinators, enabling them to return back into county and have their complex needs met locally.
Parallel planning for those young people with unstable health needs are recognised and undertaken.
