Powys Teaching Health BoardJanuary 27 2016
Powys Teaching Health Board is responsible for meeting the health and wellbeing needs of the people of Powys, mid Wales.
As a rural health board with around 133,000 people living across an area that is a quarter of Wales, we provide as many services as possible locally. This is mainly through GPs and other primary care services, community hospitals and community services.
As we don’t have a District General Hospital, we work closely with other organisations in Wales and England to provide services for the people of Powys. We always strive to bring as many services back into Powys as possible including assessment and follow ups after treatment.
The health board also works closely with Powys County Council and the voluntary sector to meet the needs of the community.
