Powys Regional Partnership Board

The Regional Partnership Board is responsible for developing health and care services in Powys to meet the requirements set in the Social Services and Wellbeing Act (Wales) 2014.

The Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act is about putting people and what’s important in their lives at the centre of health and care services. The Regional Partnership Board oversees work in Powys to deliver this; which is undertaken through its four subsidiary Boards; the Start Well Partnership, the Disability Partnership, the Mental Health Partnership, and the Older Peoples Partnership. The Regional Partnership is also responsible for ensuring a number of ‘cross-cutting themes’ e.g. Carers, are taken forward in its (and its subsidiary Boards’) work.

Function

The priorities actions that the Regional Partnership Board will take forward for Powys are set out in Powys Area Pan which is the Health and Care Strategy. The Board’s priorities and responsibilities include:

  • Undertaking a population assessment for Powys (analysing the needs of people who have care and support needs and carers who have support needs)
  • making sure there are resources for priorities identified by the population assessment
  • more early intervention and prevention
  • giving people more control and ownership for their health and well-being
  • making sure the voice of local people is heard and acted on
  • encouraging new ideas
  • integrating health and social care services in the County

To assist with taking forward this work the Regional Partnership Board also has responsibility for allocating funds from Welsh Government’s ‘Integrated Care Fund’, which it uses to support delivery of some of the priority actions contained in the Area Plan (Powys Health and Care Strategy).
