Joint working agreements and transfers of value

We work with other organisations to make sure health and social care services have access to the latest innovations to improve patient care and enable efficiencies.

A joint working agreement (JWA) provides a common reference point which formalises this collaborative relationship, the responsibilities and boundaries for each partner.
