In addition to transforming health and wellbeing services through a new model of care is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a Multi-agency Wellbeing Campus in the heart of Newtown.
This could be the first intergenerational campus for Powys, and could include primary education, health, social care and supported accommodation.
"We believe that we can create a ground-breaking project which will deliver a range of benefits for people of all ages."
Cllr Myfanwy Alexander, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care
The preferred site for the campus is adjacent to Park Street, Newtown. Services currently on the site include the Park Day Centre, Newtown Integrated Family Centre (formerly Ysgol Dafydd Llwyd) health services and two primary schools, Ysgol Hafren and Ladywell Green.
On this site, there could be the further development of a new state of the art Rural Regional Centre which could be co-located next to some supported living accommodation, improved school facilities, as well as a Community Wellbeing Hub which could be part of a network of other Community Wellbeing Hubs across north Powys.
The Rural Regional Centre will link with Community Wellbeing Hubs and potentially with people in their home. It will give us the opportunity to deliver more services locally in Powys that are currently provided out of Powys, for example, this could include some pre-and post-operative care, day case procedures, diagnostics, outpatients and rehabilitation services.
