Powys NHS boosted by catering equipment funding


A total of £200,000 has been earmarked for NHS services in Powys, Wales, to upgrade catering, medical and dental equipment to more cost and energy-efficient models.

The money is part of a £435,000 award given to Powys Teaching Health Board by the Welsh Government. Overall the government is providing £10 million of capital funding to Welsh hospitals.

Health and social services minister Mark Drakeford said: “Despite cuts to the overall Welsh budget, we are determined to continue to invest in our NHS to make sure patients have access to the latest technology and our hospitals and health sites are maintained to the highest standards.”
