Passing a social worker or care manager in a general improves relations between primary health and social services.
Joint needs assessment and service commissioning are also needed if patients are to have speedier access to a wider range of services.
Joiont assesment and commissioning do not require new legislation or pooled budgets.

Success of joint commissionning initiatives depends on a commitment to joint ownership and involvement of primary health and social services staff.
