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.

We have been working with Earl Mountbatten Hospice on the Island to use their expertise to provide training in end of life care to staff working across the Isle of Wight healthcare system. The two courses covered both end of life care and end of life and dementia training to help address gaps in staff knowledge and give them the confidence to support people who are approaching the end of their life appropriately. The training, which has been widely appreciated and welcomed by staff across the system, has been attended by around 250+ staff from organisations like residential care and nursing homes, social workers, domiciliary care agencies, nursing staff and college trainers. Further training is now planned until March 2019.
