Seamless care? Moving through the care and support system as a young person with palliative care needs

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventSeminar/workshop/course


The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hospice & Palliative Care met on the 27th November for a lively discussion of the journey of young people with palliative care needs from children’s to adult’s health and care services. The discussion was framed and informed by headline findings from a three-year research project on transition launched at the meeting. There was a consensus that urgent action by decision-makers and providers alike was needed to support the growing number of young people living longer with life-limiting/threatening conditions and, as a result, transitioning from childrens to adult services.
