Product description

This guide combines effective health and social services in primary care settings. The format emphasizes the interdependence of clinical, organizational, managerial and personal effectiveness, and draws on a series of local case studies to demonstrate how NHS, social services departments and independent sector resources can be brought together. The views put forward are designed to challenge the tendency to drive policy initiatives down seperate channels and to progress clinical effectiveness especially in isolation.
