Administrative/Biographical history: From 1888, Radnorshire County Council was responsible for healthcare administration in the county. The Radnorshire Panel Committee, subsequently renamed the Panel and Local Medical Committee, was part of the administration system for general practice; it became the Local Medical Committee in 1948. From 1911-1948, Radnorshire Insurance Committee administered contributions from those in employment. Also in 1948, following the creation of the National Health Service and other welfare provisions, Radnorshire Local Executive Council was established and had responsibility for family practitioner services. The council dealt with family doctors, dentists and pharmaceutical arrangements in Radnorshire. In 1974 the Powys Area Health Authority was established and took responsibility for healthcare provision in Radnorshire. Knighton and District Nursing Association has been active since 1908.
