Information about our services for patients and families.Our care services
We are currently establishing our Transition Service; developing a clear pathway for young people to follow and forging links with adult services in order to give comprehensive guidance to families.
We are working closely with specific respite, residential and day centres to promote good care and communication between children’s and adult services. This allows us to liaise with the family and professionals in an effective manner and achieve a smooth transition for all parties.
We aim for every young person to have the opportunity to express their opinions on their future and for these opinions to be respected. We will always endeavour to meet any needs and wishes in a holistic manner, considering both the young person and their family.
Each case is managed on an individual basis, in a person-centred manner, but as a general rule, we aim to transition and discharge young people by their 19th birthday. We will always aim to agree this with the family, offering full support in identifying potential services. This can include meetings, tours, introductory visits, agreed sharing of information and much more.
There will always be cases where it will be inappropriate to discharge by the 19th birthday. These young people will still be supported in identifying other adult services, but will continue to access Chestnut Tree House. These plans will be subject to regular reviews to ensure that we remain an appropriate service for the young person.
The Transition Service is an evolving service. We are continually reviewing and improving to ensure that we are delivering the highest standard of care.
