Show Summary Details


This chapter examines potential and the limitations of current projects to promote the concept of partnership, focusing on the collaborative projects of the British National Health Service (NHS) and Personal Social Services (PSS) and between the local NHS, PSS and education department. It evaluates the extent to which the pitfalls of collaborative working can be resolved and effective collaboration developed and argues that the benefits will ultimately be lost without the development of the internal collaborative capacities of the participating agencies.
