Powys Teaching Health Board (PTHB) is a highly successful organisation with a budget in excess of £281 million to deliver healthcare services to the people of Powys. We are a rural Health Board with 133,000 people living across an area that is a quarter of Wales. With no District General Hospital we provide as many services as possible locally through GP provision, Community Services and Community Hospitals and Clinics. Our vision is to deliver ‘truly integrated care centered on the needs of the individual’

Our overall purpose is the delivery of safe, effective and dignified care, with nurses and midwives recognising their personal responsibility and accountability for the delivery of evidenced based care through competence in decision making and the effective management of risk, to ensure the best outcomes for patients and clients.

Our Nursing & Midwifery Strategy (2015-18) has 6 key themes:

Caring with humanity, dignity, kindness and compassion;
Providing safe, effective, harm-free care;
Listening to patients and carers and improving the way we work, securing a reputation for excellence;
Developing confident, ambitious, inspirational leaders;
Working with partners for the benefit of patients and the population;
A questioning, analytical, empowered Nursing and Midwifery workforce.
