Partnership working is central to British public policy. Few challenges facing government can be tackled successfully without working across boundaries and in partnership. Public health issues are particularly complex in this respect and yet little is known about public health partnerships. The research reported in this book seeks to go some way to closing the knowledge gap employing the notion of a public health system to explore the issues raised. The book brings the discussion up-to-date by examining the evolving public health system in England and the major changes introduced in April 2013. These have introduced new partnership forms that remain to be tested. Our research offers useful insights and learning points.
