Third Sector Engagement - Integrated Medium Term Plan

Partners from Powys teaching Health Board (PtHB)  asked PAVO to invite Third Sector colleagues to a special gathering on Thursday, 25th February 2016, 9:30 - 1:00 p.m. at Celf o Gwmpas, Llandrindod to discuss the future planning of services and activities as part of their three year Intermediate Medium Term Plan (IMTP).

This plan will be used as the basis for future commissioning of the Third Sector by the PtHB, so it was vital that the Sector is well represented at the meeting. This was a rare opportunity to meet with new Executive Directors of the Board and influence their planning decisions.
