One thought on “Who we are

  1. Dear Contact –

    I have recently spoken with David Monk about the Collaborative and would appreciate the chance to learn more from a commissioning, provider and partnership perspective.
    To put my enquiry into context – I am a mental health Service Director and have recently been seconded to two CCG’s to lead on the design and development of the mental health care pathway for the evolving Integrated Accountable Care Organisations. I have been looking at the research on the integration of physical and mental healthcare and just last week visited Oxfordshire to hear more about the ‘Partnership Approach’ that they have implemented.
    I would really appreciate a conversation with Dennis ORourke– would you be able to put me in contact with him?
