Abstract

We assessed the impact that such disengagement during transition has upon clinical measures.Methods: Service evaluation involving a retrospective case note review of patients aged 16 or 17 years on 31 December 2012 who should have transitioned across into the young adult clinic to identify what proportion are lost to follow‐up in the three years post transition and to review the impact of this on clinical outcomes.Results: Of 31 patients (mean (SD) age 16.0 (0.4) years, duration of diabetes 6.8 (4.4) years), nine attended regularly (missing no appointments within the three‐year period), and 22 were irregular attenders (missed any appointment within the clinic but subsequently attended at least one appointment in 2015).
