Today, LGC is publishing its first Joining-up government supplement, to coincide with our second Joining-up government symposium.

The symposium brings together figures from local and central government, the health service and the private sector to discuss solutions to issues such as education standards, working between the NHS and local government, transport policy and developing the public sector's leadership skills.

The event, held in private, is chaired by Geoff Mulgan, head of the prime minister's forward strategy unit and director of the Performance and Innovation Unit at the Cabinet Office, and Sir Michael Lyons, director of the Institute of Local Government Studies. Speakers include Professor Paul Corrigan, special adviser to the health secretary, Dr Wendy Thomson, head of the prime minister's Office of Public Services Reform, Peter Housden, director general for schools, and Michael Emmerich of the Downing Street Policy Unit.

The LGC supplement explores lessons from Scotland and Wales on joining up services, successes and failures in initiatives to break down barriers, the interminable struggle to bring local government and health closer, and the role of technology.
