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.
Are there areas of your general health and wellbeing that you would like to improve? Would you like to know where to find reliable health information and advice, to help you make these changes? This is the section for you. You can also read stories from local people and find useful links and resources.

Work is underway to redesign acute (hospital based) services to ensure they offer the best quality, safety, access and affordability for Island residents and can be sustained in the longer term as demand for services increase.
