"Genuine partnerships between agencies are more critical than ever to the delivery of health and social services. Far too many of them have been partnerships in name only, but now the pressure is on for the real thing. This highly authoritative series shows practitioners how it should be done."
Mark Ivory, Executive Editor, Community Care
