Powys ‘Shaw’-up care contract

Created on 02/06/2022 @ 09:54


Welshpool’s Llys Hafren is one of 12 care homes included in a two-year contract extension signed between Shaw Healthcare and Powys County Council.

The Cardiff-headquartered Shaw healthcare agreed a lease to operate 12 local authority-owned care homes across the region and worked closely with the council to integrate more than 400 existing staff, following the transfer of the contract from the previous care providers in 2019.

“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,” said its regional director, Cosmin Lemnaru.

“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. Despite this, they kept driving forward and did whatever they could to keep residents safe, while maintaining a positive environment within our care communities.”

Powys County Council’s Head of Commissioning and Partnership – Social Services, Dylan Owen, commented: “Our contract with Shaw healthcare has been well received and hugely effective for the vulnerable and older people of Powys over the last few years and we welcome the opportunity to extend the contract further and to work in partnership with Shaw to develop our services for the better.”
