At the second meeting, a draft ‘terms of reference’ that had been circulated was reviewed. Consultations with colleagues essentially positive, though the term ‘Partnership’ was preferred to ‘Consortium’ which had been used in the draft paper. The statement of purpose and objectives for the Partnership were agreed. These have remained pretty much intact throughout PiP’s time. Finally, there was an action plan to take back to colleagues in the hospitals and community service. This set out tasks to be undertaken by working groups, each with named members from across the Trusts.
