The National institute for Health and Care Excellence is consulting on a draft quality standard to cover all young people (aged up to 25) using children’s health and social care services who are due to make the transition to adults’ services. It will include young people:
- in local authority care
- with mental health problems
- with disabilities
- with long-term, life-limiting or complex needs.
The standard will cover the period before, during and after a young person moves from children’s to adults’ services.
The deadline for comments is 22 August 2016.
More information is available on the NICE website.
