By J Keech and S WilksThis toolkit documents part of the continuing progress by Shropshire Health Authority and Telford & Wrekin Council towards integrated action on health inequalities in Telford and Wrekin during 1999/2000. As emphasis continued to be placed on the development of partnerships as a way towards reducing health inequalities the councils began to consider the practical help required to ensure that partnership working forms the mainstream work of all partner agencies.

The toolkit addresses a cross-sector audience, short explanations and references to major documents are provided. It is a key for all those attempting to make sense of the ultimate reasons for partnership working, and may be used as a planning tool, or retrospectively by individuals, coordinators and partnerships engaged in tackling inequalities or generally in developing sound and sustainable partnership approaches towards health improvement.
