Youth Support and Transition

Most young people will move from paediatric to adult medical services when they reach 16 to 18 years of age. We know it can be difficult moving to a new team of healthcare professionals and services and the Welsh Government wants to make sure Health Boards support young people as they move to use adult services.

Watch an animation on what to expect when moving from children's to adult healthcare services (opens in new tab).

We have strong links with our paediatric colleagues at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales, sharing laboratory facilities, teaching and training opportunities. We also attend regular joint clinics at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales to help support adolescents and young adults transferring from paediatric to adult medical services.
