Jan 2012 – Charter for Social Workers working in partnerships with health and social care services in England

Is the creation or removal of formal partnership agreements between health and social care a good thing or a bad thing?

The last year has seen some major changes in partnership between health and social care. At one end of the spectrum social service departments are pulling out of agreements with mental health trusts and at the other end social service departments are setting up new partnership agreements. The latest of the new partnerships is in Staffordshire Staffordshire county council plans to transfer 1,000 adult social care employees to NHS to create the UK’s biggest integrated health and social care provider. (Final confirmation of the agreement is awaited).
