Group looking at the future of Mid Wales healthcare awarded £200,000 funding
The Welsh Government and NHS Wales have awarded £200,000 to the Mid Wales Healthcare Collaborative to take forward its work programme and ensure the public and healthcare professionals are involved.
The collaborative was set up following the publication of the Mid Wales Study and to challenge and support Betsi Cadwaladr, Hywel Dda and Powys health boards and the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust as they work together to modernise health services across Mid Wales.
The three health boards have committed to provide £50,000 funding each to the collaborative’s work and the Welsh Government is also providing £50,000, which help meet costs, including backfill to cover clinical commitments, holding public meetings and office costs.
The Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust is providing staff time to support engagement and communications and work to improve transport to access services.
