Everyone with Type 1 diabetes needs a team around them to make sure they’re happy and healthy. As you get older, your team will change as you move over to an adult clinic. This is called transition.
No one expects you to transition from children’s care to adult clinic overnight. In fact, you should carry on seeing the team you already know while you get used to the new faces and clinic you’ll be dealing with in the future.
Our Guide on moving into adult diabetes care (PDF, 570KB) explains what you can expect to happen during your transition and the care and support you should get. It might also be useful if you’re moving to a new place for university or work.
