Health and Social care - Why responsibility for communications and engagement should not be combined in a single position - A cautionary tale from Cornwall

This report tells the story of Cornwall's Sustainability and Transformation Plan from late 2016 to mid-2017, focusing on the problems of securing 'engagement' by the public. It reveals how communications between health bodies and the local authority, Cornwall Council, have come close to breaking down, and identifies the root cause of this as the combining of responsibilities for communications and engagement in a single position.
