Abstract

The development and review of Somerset Social Services' learning disability services have presented a series of management challenges. Many will be familiar to managers in other parts of Britain. Considering the current policy theme of partnership working, this article identifies and discusses some of the management issues in Somerset that have arisen from joint working between health and social services: the commissioning of singly‐managed community teams and the provision of acute health care.
