'What counts is what works'? New Labour and partnerships in public health

Perkins, Neil. and Smith, Katherine and Hunter, David J. and Bambra, Clare and Joyce, Kerry (2010) ''What counts is what works'? New Labour and partnerships in public health.', Policy and politics., 38 (1). pp. 101-107.


Partnership working has been a central feature of New Labour's approach to the delivery of health and social policy since 1997. A number of partnership-based initiatives have centred on reducing health inequalities and improving health. This article reports on the findings from a systematic review of the impact of partnership working on public health, and considers whether these partnerships have delivered better health outcomes for local/target populations. It finds that there is little evidence that partnerships have produced better health outcomes for local/target populations or reduced health inequalities.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Partnership, Public health, Health inequalities.
