One of the 29 recommendations of the 'The same as you?' review was that local authorities and health boards should draw up Partnership in Practice agreements (PiPs). The aim of this national overview report is to provide feedback on the key messages that emerge from a review of all of the 2004-2007 PiPs, taking account of additional evidence from other sources. Key themes identified are: health promotion and improving access to health, Local Area Coordination, carers, short breaks or respite, autism spectrum disorders, Direct Payments, day services, further education and employment, supported living and vulnerable adults. This report aims to highlight positive developments that can be shared to support improvement across Scotland, and to inform the next round of plans for 2007-2010.
