In the light of the research presented and the public health changes underway in England, assesses the future prospects for public health partnerships which will become more complex and challenging. This chapter argues for a different approach which emphasizes the importance of relationships and suggests the need for less attention being given to structures and order. Partnerships in future need to be much more flexible and task oriented, engaging with those who can effect change on the frontline. The public health challenges facing society have few obvious or clear-cut solutions. Partnerships need to experiment and take risks to find out what works and why. If this requires being a little messy in how the work gets done then that may be desirable. The chapter offers some learning points for effective partnership working.
