Relationships between social services departments and health authorities have improved in the past year, according to a survey by the Association of Directors of Social Services.

Sixty per cent of social services departments in England and Wales reported an improvement, with hardly any saying relations had worsened.

More than 90% thought relationships were good, very good or adequate. But for London councils the figure drops to below 70%.

The relationship between social care staff and GPs still had some way to go with 70% of respondents referring to difficulties with family doctors. There were also problems with the flow of information between social services and GP practices.
