total Place – hanging by a thread?

7 May 2010

The Total Place agenda developed by Labour over the last 12 months hangs in the balance following last nights General Election as Whitehall comes to terms with the reality of implementing such wide scale public sector reform where no political party holds an overall majority.

The Total Place agenda aims to take a ‘whole system’ approach to commissioning and delivering public services. Prior to the General Election the three main political parties all publicly declared their commitment to supporting the development of further integration between public sector organisations.

With impending and significant budget cuts looming the question now is not a case of when, but how the parties will reconcile their policies, and agree on a joint approach to progressing the public sector reform agenda.
