About the Transition category

A smooth transition from Paediatric to Adult Services is particularly important for young people with epilepsy. We’d love to hear about your experience or concerns, and any advice you can pass on.

I recently transitioned from Paediatric to Adult services and found it a daunting process as I had previously relied on my mum to do most of the talking for me in appointments and was now expected to be a lot more independent regarding my care, which in retrospect, I should have got more involved at a younger age. However, the doctors in adult services are equally as supportive and it is certainly less daunting than before!
