Our health and care challenges

Like every community, on the Isle of Wight we are having to deal with a number of difficult challenges which put pressure on the health and care services we offer, namely:

  • People leading unhealthy lifestyles
  • People living longer and needing more support
  • An increase in the number of people living with long term illnesses
  • Financial pressures on public services
  • Higher costs of providing services on the Island
  • The need to provide the best quality of care to Island residents within these constraints
