My Life a Full Life is a new way of working across our health and care system – our new care model - on the Isle of Wight, that will enable us to manage our current and future challenges ensuring safe, sustainable, quality care and health improvements for all. A system in which health and care services will work together in a more coordinated, effective and efficient way, delivering more care at home and in the local community, to enable people to manage their health more easily and live their lives to the full.

to help you stay healthy and well
on the Isle of Wight
On the Isle of Wight, we have much to celebrate about our way of life and the opportunities it gives us to live our lives to the full.
However, we also have a growing problem we cannot ignore. As a community we are getting older in increasing numbers, often with complex, long-term health and care needs and we are placing unsustainable demands on the services that support us. So, we need to do things differently and radically change the way health and care services are delivered in the future, to ensure we stay healthy and enjoy all that the Island has to offer.
You can find out more about My Life a Full Life new model of care and the programme of work to transform our health and care system on the Isle of Wight as you take a tour around our website.
We have had lots of useful conversations with people about the sorts of things we need to do to improve health and care services on the Island. Lots of ideas have been put forward and you can read more here about the sort of things we have been able to put in place as a result of your feedback.
