ensuring the integration of care and support provision with health
provision and health-related provision”

“A local authority must co-operate with each of its relevant partners, and
each relevant partner must co-operate with the authority, in the exercise
of their functions relating to adults and carers”

“Local authorities and their partners must co-operate where this is
needed in the case of specific individuals who have care and support
needs”
