Powys County Council is committed to improving the lives of people with a disability, a mental health related illness, and older people to live well, and age well in Powys. Safeguarding is, and always will be, our highest priority.
An Adult Services inspection report from Care Inspectorate Wales will help drive a three-year improvement programme in Powys.
Findings from the report published today (May 1st), which have been fully accepted by Powys County Council , will form a key part of the council’s 2017-2020 adult services improvement programme.
An Adult Services inspection report carried out by the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) has been accepted and welcomed by Powys County Council. The report highlights a number of improvements, and work is already underway to address these through our Adult Services Improvement Plan which can be viewed on this page.
In readiness for the inspection, Adult Services implemented the Improvement Plan after carrying out a comprehensive and detailed self-assessment of the service prior to the inspection. The plan will continue to be developed based on feedback from staff, adults who require care and support and carers, external review, audit and challenge, and the CIW inspection report.
Delivering the changes highlighted within the plan promptly and effectively will mean we can provide the people of Powys, at the earliest possible time, with realistic reassurance that adults are being safeguarded effectively and that adult services is fulfilling all of its statutory responsibilities to the highest possible standard.
This Plan sits within a wider strategic framework of the Wellbeing Plan and the Health and Care Strategy Area Plan, and seeks to draw a golden thread across all key planning arrangements including the Council’s Corporate Improvement Plan (aligned to the Vision 2025) and Powys Teaching Health Boards’ Integrated Medium-Term Plan (IMTP).
