WHAT IS POWYS’ REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP BOARD AND WHAT IS ITS PURPOSE?
Powys Regional Partnership Board (RPB) brings together a range of public service representatives including the local council, health board, third sector and other key people including citizens, to ensure that people work together better to improve health and wellbeing in Powys.
It's about putting people and what matters to them at the centre of health and care services. The RPB oversees the delivery of this in Powys, which is done through its programmes: Start Well, Live Well, Age Well as well as some other work which cuts across all of these.
The Board's priorities are set out in the Powys Area Plan - the Health and Care Strategy. Some of the Board’s responsibilities include making sure resources are available, that people remain independent for as long as possible, and that health and care services are fully joined up
To help make this happen, the RPB also has responsibility for allocating funds from Welsh Government’s Integrated Care Fund (ICF), which it uses to support key projects.
As part of the role;
- You will be expected to sit for a maximum of 3 years and attend quarterly RPB meetings based in Llandrindod Wells.
- You will also be asked to attend additional development days and events on behalf of the RPB for Welsh Government.
- A PAVO officer will give full support in carrying out your role and all expenses will be covered.
Closing date for applications to be sent/emailed back to PAVO Friday, 28th August 2020.
