Changes in Health and Social Care (HSC) service organisation have led to increased team working between different professionals and the blurring and overlapping of traditional professional role boundaries. Public inquiries into deaths of children at the Bristol Royal Infirmary2, the death of Victoria Climbie3 and more recently Peter Connelly4 have demonstrated that HSC teams do not always collaborate optimally, leading to a lack of continuity, and serious errors, in care.
