Transition through health services
Commissioning health services is the responsibility of NHS Hampshire.
It is the responsibility of health services to identify whether a young person is likely to continue to have physical or mental health needs when s/he leaves school and to ensure that arrangements are put in place as far as possible, to enable those needs to be met.
During the transition process an assessment of health needs and a health plan are carried out, if necessary.
The assessment of health needs provides information about the impact of health and disability issues on the young person and their future choices and leads to recommendations for interventions and strategies.
A health plan is a personal plan about what a young person with disabilities or complex needs can do to be healthy and maintain wellbeing and should list support required to achieve those objectives.
