COVID-19 Impact Service

Red Kite is a not for profit community interest company formed in 2015 to deliver health and wellbeing services to the people of South Powys and surrounding area.

Formed from a collaboration of the four practices in South Powys we provide cost effective, innovative health care solutions driven by outcomes that matter to our patients.

Why do we need Red Kite?

Primary care in Wales is facing unprecedented rising demand with limited resources. It is vitally important that we make every pound we spend caring for our patients count.

South Powys was in a unique position with its four practices already meeting on a regular basis to discuss primary care, collaborating successfully to set up a South Powys Community Resource Team and Virtual Ward. Through this work it became apparent that by working together we could learn from each other, minimise waste and develop efficient local solutions to healthcare demands in the region. Red Kite is the organisation that allows us to do this successfully, introducing identified health solutions across the locality. In the changing landscape of primary care Red Kite will ensure that sustainable, innovative, high quality healthcare will be provided to the population of South Powys for the foreseeable future.

Red Kite Health Solutions

Red Kite Health Solutions CIC supporting the community
thanks to National Lottery Funding

Red Kite Health Solutions CIC in South Powys will be helping their community during this challenging time thanks to the support of National Lottery players, by allowing us to introduce a COVID-19 Impact Support Service to the patients of South Powys.

The service will be providing telephone support for patients effected by the impact of COVID-19 at a local level. Identifying shielding and non-responder patients who have not accessed services during the pandemic, or who may be reluctant to attend. Patients will be contacted by telephone and given advice relating to service provision that is available at both a primary and community level, the opportunity to discuss the safety measures in the GP practices and access to the booking of health appointments where applicable. Signposting will also be available to patients to community and third sector services in their local area, particularly in response to mental health and the impact of lockdown and isolation.

The aim is to improve the wellbeing for South Powys, during what has been, and will continue to be a difficult period on a global level. 

Red Kite Health Solutions CIC successfully applied for a People and Places Grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Siân Jones, Business & Development Manager at Red Kite Health Solutions CIC said;

‘We are delighted to receive this grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, which will go a long way in supporting and improving the health and wellbeing of the population In South Powys’

‘Our aim is to promote and increase the uptake of crucial health checks as well as signposting to available health and wellbeing services and we are thrilled to be able to offer this service thanks to the National Lottery and the public’

The National Lottery Community Fund is prioritising grant application for community activity related to COVID-19. To find out more visit www.tnlcommunityfund.org.uk/wales
