A private care company that runs a Welshpool residential care home about to be taken back under the umbrella of Powys County Council has said it was surprised to learn of the plans in the media.

MyWelshpool published a story yesterday confirming Powys County Council plans to set up a trading company to take back the running of 12 residential care homes in Powys next May, includingLlys Hafren in Welshpool. Bupa Care Services leases Llys Hafren and Powys’ other residential care homes.

But yesterday the council confirmed it would not be renewing the lease from next year, which has already been extended by 12 months.

It emerged today that Bupa was only aware of the plans having read about it in the media.

The council’s cabinet took the decision earlier this week.

A spokesperson for Bupa Care Services said: “We are proud of the high quality of care that we deliver in the 12 homes we operate in Powys, which we lease from the council.

“We were surprised to learn in the local media that the council may set up a company to run these homes after the current contract expires next May.
 
“Our priority is always the wellbeing of our residents. We are speaking to them, their families and our people to update them and reassure them that nothing is going to change immediately. We will continue to deliver the high quality of care residents expect of us.
 
“No final decision has been made and the council will take the next few months to review arrangements and decide what to do next.”
