Prof. Jill Manthorpe, King's College London

About This Book

UK health and social care are increasingly being asked to work together across traditional agency boundaries. Although this sounds easy in theory, doing it in practice is incredibly difficult and complicated. In many cases, moreover, current training programmes, research and textbooks are even more divided than front-line services, and practitioners and managers are often being tasked with making partnerships work without the necessary support. Against this background, this book provides a 'warts and all' introduction to partnership working, summarising current policy and research, setting out useful frameworks and approaches, and helping policy makers and practitioners to work more effectively together. Written by a leading team from the Health Services Management Centre, the book is also fully evidence- and research-based, while still being accessible and applicable to everyday practice. Aimed at students, practitioners, managers and policy makers in health and social care, this is the one book that everyone in the field should read.
