This paper seeks to provide information on progress within one of the local authorities involved with the original Total Place pilot a year following the production of the final report.


Under a number of headings, the paper describes the progress being made in relation to the broader concepts described in the Total Place – Older People pilot report.


The paper reinforces the benefits of working closely and in partnership with older people and other public services, particularly the NHS.


The paper provides an example of how one local authority is working with partners on improving services and efficiency in outcomes for older people.
