Abstract: Despite the convincing and optimistic rhetoric the development of sustainable GP/Mental Health Shared Care Programmes has been very slow and fraught with problems. This paper will consider some of the principal issues that turn elegant plans into unholy messes. It begins by recognising that it is not just a case of changing service relations; it involves changing a culture.
