Despite some challenges, we have a unique opportunity to transform the way we deliver care for Powys’ changing population.
Workforce is the single most important factor in the quality of care we deliver and is therefore integral to achieving what is set out in Powys’ Health and Care Strategy.
Powys’ health and care system has set out an exciting strategy for the future of its workforce, which focuses on high quality, person-centred care and greater partnership working.
We consider our workforce in the wider context, and this includes people working across the private, independent and the third sector. We also recognise volunteers and carers play a significant role as part of our team.

Powys Health and Care Academy
Powys Regional Partnership Board (RPB) is pressing ahead with plans for a new health and care academy for the county.
Its first campus in Basil Webb Hall, on the Bronllys Hospital site, will open in the autumn, with plans to develop further similar facilities, across the county, over the next couple of years.
The Powys Health and Care Academy (HCA) will offer face-to-face and digital learning opportunities through four schools - a School of Research, Development and Innovation, a School of Leadership, a School of Volunteers and Carers, and a School of Professional and Clinical Education and Training - to employees in the health and care sector, to those looking for a career in the sector and to volunteers and unpaid carers who support the sector.
Its first group of learners will be young adults who are being offered work placements with Powys Teaching Health Board, Powys County Council's Social Services department and Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations through the UK Government-funded Kickstart Scheme.
