Alongside this we have a significant commissioning role working with providers in both Wales and England.
Our ambitious Health and Care Strategy sets out our vision for the future of a healthy, caring Powys. It describes how in partnership, we will focus on wellbeing, ensure early help and support, tackle the main conditions that limit life, and provide joined up care.
This includes increasing the capacity, capability and resilience of primary and community services, improving integration throughout the health and care pathway, and strengthening our planning and commissioning of high-quality services from neighbouring organisations.
