Dorset Councils And NHS Work Together On Care
12:56pm 17th July 2013
New ways of delivering health and social care services across Dorset are being explored.
The new initiative 'Better Together' sees the NHS joining forces with Bournemouth, Poole, and Dorset councils.
Key projects include early intervention and prevention and helping people stay independent longer.
There's also a shared focus on extending shared information and advice services to be open to everyone.
Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole councils already spend more than £ 1 billion on health and social care every year.
