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.
The rural nature of Powys means that we don’t have a District General Hospital in the county, so we work closely with other organisations in Wales and England to provide these 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.
Your views are important to us. We want to involve local people in helping us to transform services that meet their needs and aim to bring healthcare closer to home. We hope you like our new website and find it useful. If you have any comments, or requests for information which you would like to see online, please let us know.

With 133,000 people living in over a quarter of Wales, we do not have the population for a District General Hospital in Powys. We therefore pay Powys residents to receive specialist hospital services in out-of-county hospitals.
