Powys County Council has agreed a two-year contract extension with Shaw healthcare, to run care homes until May 2024.
In 2019, Shaw healthcare agreed a lease to operate 12 local authority-owned care homes across the region. Shaw also jointly-runs an integrated care facility with Powys Teaching Health Board at Glan Irfon in Builth Wells.
Shaw’s regional director, Cosmin Lemnaru, said it had been the most challenging period for the sector in living memory.
“The extension of our contract in Powys is testament to the hard work our staff have put in, month after month, during what has been a difficult period for so many people. I cannot describe how hard our teams in Powys worked throughout the pandemic and the pressures it put on them, as well as residents and their families.”
