Peck, Edward; Towell, David; Gulliver, Pauline
Journal of Interprofessional Care, v15 n4 p319-27 Nov 2001
Evaluated how British health and local authorities integrated mental health services into general health and social services. Stakeholder interviews and surveys showed that the recurrent theme of culture meant different things to different people. Shared culture was widely believed to lead to seamless service and collaboration, but low staff morale and concern over protecting roles and skills told another story. (SM)
