Planning your visit
The Children and Young People’s Outpatients Department offers an interactive space for young patients and their families.
- The theme for the department is ‘under the sea’. Wall art flows from the waiting area through to consultation rooms and the relaxation room to help create a familiar environment for patients and visitors.
- Entertainment units featuring interactive games for patients up to 17-years-old and offer a more inclusive, ‘clutter- free’ environment.
- A renewed sensory facility has also been installed in the department.
- The reflection room is a new addition and something the Trust has rolled out previously within its adult services. This is a space where patients and families can sit and reflect.
Transitioning to adult services
In healthcare, we use the word transition to describe the process of preparing, planning and moving from children’s to adult services. Transition is a gradual process that gives young people, and everyone involved in care, time to get ready to move to adult services and discuss what healthcare needs are required as an adult.
