Better Advice Better Lives

Better Advice Better Health is able to support local Health Commissioners and reduce workload pressures on

GPs and others by helping with the non-medical problems which frequently impact on health.


Our Better Advice Better Health advisers have been working with Primary Health Care Teams for 20 years now and they are busier than ever. 

Currently funded by Welsh Government with a contribution from Powys Teaching Health Board, advisers visit:

· Llanfyllin

· Welshpool

· Llanidloes

· Presteigne

· Llandrindod Wells

· Talgarth

Medical Centres.

The service is available to all registered patients

and Citizens Advice input has become an integral

part of primary care.
