Description

This case study assesses the effect that health and social care had on the chronic life-limiting condition of a young man going through transition from children's to adult services. He was taken into foster care at 16 years old and placed with his maternal uncle and aunt. Relevant literature is introduced to consider the impact that placement had on the foster family and the young person as he was transitioned over a two-year period to adult services, not only in terms of their adaptations, but also on his health and prognosis. Close liaison between social services and hospital and community teams meant that medical and social outcomes were markedly improved for this young man.
