COUNCILLORS have backed a move to combine the county council’s community equipment service with those of Bournemouth and Poole councils.

The proposal was considered at a meeting of Dorset County Council’s cabinet, with a report going before members stating that the service – which provides simple and complex aids for daily living as well as bespoke special items of equipment – cost less in the conurbation, despite the county purchasing less items of equipment.

This led the consortium of local health organisations and the council, which jointly commission the Dorset service, to consider moving towards a joint service based on the Bournemouth and Poole model.
