Transition was good. Everyone was friendly, helpful and caring



If you have HIV you will have been seen by the team at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. The hospital looks after patients from across the south west and so this may have been in outreach clinics nearer to where you live. The team runs clinics in Gloucester, Swindon, Bath, Yeovil, Taunton Exeter and Plymouth alongside those in Bristol. When you move to adult services you should continue to be seen in a hospital near to where you live. 

You may have needed to attend appointments every 3-4 months at the hospital. This will continue when you move to adult services. These appointments might be with your nurse specialist, consultant, psychologist or dietician. You will find out more about who is in your adult team before you move to adult services and will be able to have a joint clinic with both your children's and adult team to help make the move easier.  

If you have needed to attend Bristol Royal Hospital for Children you might find there are some changes between being in a children's hospital and an adult hospital. Hospitals can vary but some of the changes might involve being an inpatient and staying on the ward. You can talk about moving to adult services and where you will be seen with your team. They will help prepare you for the move.
