The proposed Cylch Caron Integrated Resource Centre in Tregaron has moved closer to fruition, following the successful completion of the Pre-Qualification stage of the Invitation to Tender.

The invitation to tender was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 12 February 2018 with the top five scoring contractors now being invited to tender to deliver this much needed integrated health, social care and residential extra-care scheme.

The tender for a design and build solution has been developed with the aim of delivering best value for money and modern health, social care and extra-care facilities for current and future generations.

Councillor Catherine Hughes, Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Member and Chair of the Cylch Caron Stakeholder Board said: “This is an excellent opportunity for the construction industry to design and build a new fully integrated health, residential and social care provision for the County. It was very pleasing to see so many expressing an interest in working with the Project Partners to deliver this exciting scheme and the overall quality of the pre-qualification submissions made.”

The impressive scheme is being developed in partnership between Ceredigion County Council, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Mid Wales Housing Association and the Welsh Government. It will consist of a GP surgery, community pharmacy, outpatient clinics and community nursing and social care facilities, together with 34 extra care flats and six integrated health and social care units.
