PAT is now one of the most widely used tools in the UK for assessing partnership working. This is a generic tool that is suitable for any inter-agency context, and has been most widely used in the fields of health-social care, and strategic partnerships. Versions of PAT have been commissioned from the Department of Health and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. It can be used in-house by agencies themselves or with the help of the team who developed it – Bob Hudson, Brian Hardy and Eileen Waddington.

Product Development

PAT was designed primarily to assess inter-agency working, but an equally important issue is that of closer inter-professional integration. A companion tool to PAT designed to assist in the design and assessment of effective inter-professional working is currently in development. Further details will be posted on the web site later this year.
