This thesis analyses network, networking and interprofessional collaborative features and their potential development within health services. An ethnographic methodology was used that included non-participant observations to provide a background, basic quantitative data as well as a qualitative approach. The qualitative method involved a random sample of twenty-four individuals working in one acute NHS hospital using semi-structured, in-depth interview questions to determine, through thematic interpretation of the analytical data, their perceptions of network, networking and interprofessional collaboration features. This provided insights into how these features manifest themselves and are interlinked.
