Welsh Ministers in Powys
|9th March 2018|
Welsh Government Ministers have been in Powys as part of a whistle-stop tour of Wales discussing the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care in Wales.
Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services, Vaugh Gethin AM and Minister for Children and Social Care, Huw Irranca-Davies AM met with senior representatives of Powys County Council and Powys Teaching health Board at County Hall, Llandrindod Wells on Thursday (March 8).
Powys County Council leader, Councillor Rosemarie Harris said; "I am delighted to welcome both the Minister and Cabinet Secretary to Powys. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the implications for Powys of the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care in Wales.
"It is important that we are able to share our journey with Powys Teaching Health Board and demonstrate our commitment to integration through our joint Powys Health and Care Strategy. Close joint working not just with the local health board, but also the third sector and other key partners is important for health and social care provision in Powys.
"We have some amazing examples of community based projects and enhanced services that help support people in Powys to lead a more fulfilled life in a community they choose to live in. Examples of this commitment can be seen across Powys including Glan Irfon, our joint health and care facility in Builth Wells, the new integrated IT system WCCIS, and our Fit for Purpose accommodation project, all of which were reflected in the parliamentary review."
