Transition - A guide for Clinical Commissioning Groups

This resource is designed to support clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to effectively commission smooth and well-planned transitions to adulthood for young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions between the ages of 13 and 25. It is also intended to help CCGs commission age-appropriate health services for this population group. It covers the following:

  • What do young people with life-limiting conditions need?
  • How does this differ from children or older adults?
  • How many young people with life-limiting conditions should CCGs expect to commission care for?
  • Who provides services to young people with life-limiting conditions?
  • What should CCGs do?
  • Who else should be involved in commissioning for this population?
  • What outcomes can CCGs improve by implementing these recommendations?
