- Access to information, advice and support
- Opportunities to visit the new place of care and new care team prior to transfer
- Experiences of hospital wards and outpatient clinic appointments
- Understanding patient self-management of condition
There are two versions of the transition survey, one for people to self-report on their experiences as they approach transfer to adult services or are currently in transition (ie in the process of transferring), and another for those who have recently transferred to adult services.
