This practical toolkit has been developed in the recognition that, although the current trend in developing partnerships is positive, many discover difficulties in working effectively. Using the experience of the wide variety of partnerships that exist in Leeds, the author highlights the potential for duplication of effort and dilution of resources and expertise as partnerships continue to emerge.CONTENT
Described as a toolkit, this document provides a brief overview of good practice in partnership working and includes a tool for assessing the effectiveness of partnership groups. Although emerging through the experience of a primary care trust, this document targets all sector organisations involved in the development of partnerships. It can be used for developing partnerships at organisation, community and district levels.
