ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP
Powys Regional Partnership Board (RPB) brings together a range of service representatives including the local council, health board, voluntary sector and other key people including citizens. We do this 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 the programmes Start Well, Live Well and Age Well as well as other key 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 Regional Integration Fund (RIF), which it uses to support key projects.
FOCUS ON WELLBEING
By focussing on well-being we make sure people experience good health, happiness and prosperity. It includes having good mental health and a clear sense of purpose.
TACKLING THE 'BIG 4'
As some of the main contributors to ill health, Cancer, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, and mental health disorders are a big focus.
EARLY HELP & SUPPORT
Providing early help and support in an integrated way is vital across the life course to improve well-being, prevent disease, and enable people to lead fulfilled lives.
JOINED UP CARE
With growing expectations and a complex health system, we need to become more flexible when responding to people. We can do this better when we work together and join up care services.
The Area Plan is Powys Regional Partnership Board’s (RPB) shared plan for the next five years. It builds on what is already happening in the county and sets out how together, we will address the gaps.
We use our Population Needs Analysis and Market Stability Report, and speak to as wide a range of people as possible to identify how, by working together, we can make the biggest difference for people in Powys.
Every five years, we review our plans, priorities, data and emerging policy. Along with the Area Plan we have also reviewed the Health and Care Strategy, A Healthy Caring Powys (2017 – 2027) and how we will deliver this ten-year ambition.
The partnership also produces an annual report which looks at the progress being made each year. Take a look at some the key documents to learn more about the work of the RPB.
