In these times, never has advancement and integration between health and social care been of such paramount importance and we applaud the huge effort that the councils involved are going to.
Capsticks are proud to be sponsoring the Public Sector Partnerships Award for a second year where we have the opportunity to recognise the success councils have achieved over the past year.
Capsticks’ health and social care team has experience of both the health and local government sector and can help you to deliver the ground-breaking solutions that now need to be delivered.
The Winner of the LGC Awards 2013 - Public Sector Partnerships Award
- TRAFFORD MBC
Trafford Partnership embodies the spirit and power of effective partnership working. It is tackling key issues by driving innovative collaboration to improve services and achieve efficiencies.
The leadership sets the culture for partnership working across the borough, encouraging all sectors to work together and with local residents, enabling everyone to take action and improve their community. It is achieving great things, making significant improvements to deprived areas and attracting substantial external investment, with the community at the heart of priority-setting, decisionmaking and local delivery.
The strength of the partnership was summed up by: ‘The whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ and the ethos that ‘We all work for the partnership’ and not it’s individual organisations
