The paper outlines the changing policy landscape in health and social care and the importance of social work leadership. It also includes a series of case studies to illustrate the value of investing in social work, fresh ideas on CPD and social work research funding, and a summary of 'next steps' for The College of Social Work including collaborative work with the Royal College of General Practitioners.
