Starting a transition plan

  • Professionals should work in partnership with young people and their parents to create a personal Transition Plan. This should be tailored to their health needs and co-ordinated with other aspects of Transition as necessary. They should be given a copy of their Transition Plan, have the opportunity to read it and ask questions.  The Transition Plan should be reviewed at each appointment.
  • A number of different transition plan formats are in use at Alder Hey. These include the generic Ready Steady Go and some condition-specific transition plans. These can be accessed via the Trust Transition team or via the website


  1. All young people have access to a hand held, personalised Transition Plan, commenced before their 15th birthday
