South Powys Cluster 2019
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.
