Differences between health care for children and adults

Some small differences but on the whole very similar, there may be things that you prefer about the adult clinic!  Some young people (and parents) see going to the adult clinic as a new start.  Remember you have got to know the children’s doctors and nurses over many years so even if the first few visits in the adult clinic seem strange keep going because you are just getting to know each other!  Adult doctors and nurses are just as happy to take time and explain things and be contacted in between clinic visits.  You can also still take your parents to adult clinic visits if you want until you get used to the new clinic.
