Further funding of £5.8 million for the Cylch Caron project in Tregaron, Wales, has been announced to move the full business case stage. It will enable partners involved in the scheme to engage a registered social landlord to take part in the final design stage of the development.

Cylch Caron is being led by Ceredigion Local Service Board and is a new model of health care intended to bring services closer to home by involving partnerships with local health boards, GPs, the local authority and the third sector. Services will include a GP surgery, community pharmacy, outpatient clinics, community nursing services to long-term nursing care and day care.

“Plans include 34 flats for people who require extra care and support to remain in their own homes and six integrated health and social care places for people who no longer need to stay in hospital but require more support before they return home” says the Welsh Government.

The Cylch Caron development, which will bring together health, housing and social services, will replace the existing Tregaron Community Hospital, Bryntirion nursing home and GP surgery.

Announcing the latest funding for the project, Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford said: “Cylch Caron will bring health, social care and housing services together under one roof, closer to the people who need them. All these services will be focused on helping people to stay well and live independently and will be flexible to the needs of people locally.

“We know that the population of Wales is getting older and many people, especially older people, will rely on these services. Working together, these services will put prevention and early intervention at the heart of everything they do – preventing dependence and helping people to retain their independence. Cylch Caron will offer a new way of providing these services to people who live in Ceredigion.”

Construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
