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.

To a certain extent the ability we have to stay healthy and well lies in the way we treat and respect ourselves – our mind and bodies. Keeping active, adopting healthy lifestyle choices, seeking support for conditions we already know we have, are just some of the ways in which we can all help ourselves to get the most out of life.
Our Island boasts a wide offering of leisure centres, gyms, swimming pools, fitness classes and sports teams, not to mention of course the beautiful harbours, beaches and scenic walking opportunities.
