Which methods of collaboration yield the best results?

Matthew Custance rates the effectiveness of the different methods of collaboration within the NHS. Beccy Fenton advocates greater standardisation, which would allow for more collaboration in the future. Roberta Carter puts forward the idea that public backing for collaboration is more important than the chosen method. 

Matthew Custance:

“I think that merging, by imposing a single management structure, has the best chance of success in an NHS collaboration.”

Beccy Fenton

“I believe that one size doesn’t fit all, and the type of collaboration depends on the problem you’re trying to solve.”

Roberta Carter

“If a merger is the answer you need to push for full integration and don’t pretend by just tinkering with management lines.”
