Abstract

Introduction: Joint working between health and social care has long been a policy priority in England, with growing interest by the previous New Labour government in achieving 'joined-up solutions to joined-up problems.'

Policy/practice: Against this background, this paper reviews lessons from current and previous partnership initiatives, summarising some of the key approaches adopted and exploring key underlying concepts and frameworks.

Conclusion: Despite a tendency to focus on structural 'solutions', evidence and experience suggests a series of more important processes, approaches and concepts that might help to promote more effective inter-agency working - including a focus on outcomes, consideration of the depth and breadth of relationship required and the need to work together on different levels.
