Abstract

The Health Promoting School concept and recent developments in the Health Service in the UK place both schools and primary care under some pressure to form collaborative links. However, such collaboration is currently rare. Presents a case study of an example of effective collaboration and identifies the benefits and difficulties from the perspective of both the school and the general practice. An analysis is provided of the factors contributing to successful collaboration, and the role of creative arts as a vehicle for joint working is discussed.
