The article analyses For the Best, referring to a research and development phase with chronically ill patients at both Evelina Children's Hospital and the Royal Liverpool Hospitals and professional performances at the Unicorn Theatre and Gostin's Building. the case study makes an argument for the careful nurturing of multiple partnerships, and draws on the findings of the external evaluation of the project. As such, it offers a specific overview of a performance emerging through a residential model, drawing out good practice that was identified by clinicians, partners and academics at symposia organised to coincide with the events. Such a model could be of value to other practitioners seeking to generate partnerships within health settings. However, the value of the residency itself is returned to as being of primary importance in the project model.

The article goes alongside an external evaluation I had conducted for the project, which reached over 120 school children, 45 patients in hospitals, and staff.
