A helpful first port of call is Isle Help - a really useful online information gateway which provides advice and signposting for a whole raft of health and care services for those living on the Isle of Wight: from financial support for carers, and guidance for finding a care home to support for addictions, and help in a crisis. Simply click on the words Isle Help in this section (or at the bottom of each page) to access to website.
A ‘Question Time’ style event at which members of the public, local politicians, and interest groups will be invited to quiz a panel of local experts will kick-start a programme of events to discuss how acute (hospital based) services could be provided in the future on the Island.
