Guide for use:

A formal working partnership involves arrangements between a service provider organisation and another service provider or organisation, aimed at providing integrated and seamless care, so that clients are able to move smoothly between services and service settings.

Examples of formal working partnerships include the existence of: written service agreements; formal liaison; referral and discharge planning processes; formal and routine consultation; protocols; partnership working groups; memoranda of understanding with other providers; and case conferencing.
