    Collaboration is the key to success in many aspects of health and social
    care delivery. It is also a characteristic of good research. This journal has
    developed from partnership working between South West Yorkshire Mental
    Health NHS Trust and the University of Huddersfield. Another local
    collaborator is the Centre for Health and Social Care Research (CHSCR)
    based in the School of Human & Health Sciences at the University of
    Huddersfield. As background for those readers unfamiliar with CHSCR; it
    was established in 2003 as a focus for research activity across local
    organisations and disciplines in West Yorkshire. It brought together a
    number of thriving research collaborations such as the Ageing and Mental
    Health Research Group and the Mental Health Research Group. Members
    of those groups have been involved in founding this journal and published
    papers in earlier editions. The emphasis of the CHSCR, irrespective of
    discipline, is on the generation of better understandings of health and social
    care and, importantly, the added value that those insights bring to the
    delivery of effective care. The CHSCR brought together the interests of
    University staff with research minded clinicians from across the broad
    constituency of health and social care. The first Centre Director was
    Professor Sue White who moved to the University of Lancaster in 2007.
    Now after nearly a year in post, this editorial offers an opportunity to offer a
    personal reflection on the importance of effective collaboration as a way of
    working for the Centre in the future.
