Since August 2009, the Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole sub‐region has been one of 13 areas in England working on a pilot project called Total Place. This government‐funded initiative is focused on understanding how services can be improved and provided at less cost by bringing together all public sector partners in an area around a specific theme. The Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole pilot was the only one that focused exclusively on older people. This paper details how the project worked and some of our findings to date.
