Every child is different. Children will all be ready to transition at different times, but most clinics usually start the process when the child is around the age of 12.

  • When the child is old enough and when they feel ready.
  • When your doctor or nurse think they may be ready.
  • The healthcare team are aiming to make the transition as easy as possible for your child.
