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.
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:
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).
The work of Powys RPB has included the creation of a new Powys Health and Care Academy, as part of a Wales-wide initiative to increase local access to education, training and development across the health and social care sector.
