Bronllys hub site
The first Academy hub site has been created at Bronllys Hospital, which is also home to the headquarters of one of the Powys Regional Partnership Board's main partners, Powys Teaching Health Board.
The campus includes Basil Webb Hall, which has been turned into a training centre with three main rooms, which can be used for face-to-face teaching and conferences, or be used to link digitally to other sites within the county.
There is also an outdoor learning space, in the form of a small amphitheatre, behind the hall, and a bungalow which has been converted into a simulated living space to help train health and social care staff who are working in community settings.
Minister opens Powys Health and Care Academy’s first campus
Powys Health and Care Academy’s first campus, at Bronllys Community Hospital, has been officially opened today (Thursday 13 October) by Health and Social Services Minister Eluned Morgan.
The new £1.6 million facility will help improve access to health and social care training in the county and encourage more people to take up a career in the sector.
Health and Social Services Minister Eluned Morgan MS said: “I was pleased to see some of the innovative work that is taking place in Powys to improve the skills of the county’s health and social care workforce, thanks to our support through the integrated care fund.
“I am looking forward to seeing how the learners I met today progress in careers which will see them looking after people with great dedication, in their times of need, for many years to come.”
