In South Wales there are the following resources to aid the transition process:
- The Ready Steady Go program. This resource has been developed by our paediatric nephrology colleagues in Southampton and is applicable to any patient with a chronic disease which will be with them when they are adults. The link gives you further information about the program and allows you to download the documentation involved. The process is usually introduced from the age of 13/14 years.
- The employment of a youth worker, Shaun Thomas, who works in both Cardiff and Swansea.
- A young adult clinic run by Dr Shiv Hegde (paediatric nephrologist) and Dr Sian Griffin (adult nephrologist) at UHW.
- A young adult clinic at Morriston Hospital to facilitate the transfer of patients in West Wales to adult services. This is run by Dr Graham Smith (paediatric nephrologist), Dr Michelle Jane Ellison (paediatrician) and Dr Clare Parker (adult nephrologist).
