This blog post from We Love Local Government looks at the well-publicised idea of sharing services between councils to improve efficiency and reduce duplication. This is an issue that will (or should) be familiar to public sector communicators, with their teams often put forward as merger potential. I could blog for hours on this topic. But this blog is worth a look for now.
