We are working to ensure that children on the Isle of Wight are supported to get the best start in life that will lead to good health and wellbeing. This will provide the foundation to ensure they are able to achieve the best opportunities and keep as healthy and well as possible throughout their lives.
We want to ensure that families, individuals and communities are thriving and resilient with access to good jobs, affordable housing, leisure activities, lifelong training, education and learning, health and care services are are able to enjoy the place in which they live.
We want to ensure that people on the Isle of Wight are able to live independently in their own homes with appropriate care support. We want to make sure older residents are supported to play an active role in their communities and supported to maintain and develop their social and community networks.
The Local Care Board is made up of the Executive Officers from the Isle of Wight Council, the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group and the Isle of Wight NHS Trust and supported by the elected member for Adult Social Care and Public Health. It reports to the Island's Health and Wellbeing Board. The group represents the bringing together of the most significant commissioners and providers of care on the Island with the responsibility to transform the Local Care System and unite efforts to improve the overall quality of health and social care on the Isle of Wight. This will build on the partnership agreements that we have already committed to as an Island and ensure that we put patients, communities and taxpayers’ interests above those of our individual organisations.
The membership of the board is as follows:
The board is also supported by a Programme Director and Independent Chair.
The Local Care Board has developed a Local Care Plan which has been agreed with all partners and by the Health and Wellbeing Board. This plan has identified and prioritised those changes required to improve care across the Island building on the Island’s shared vision for person centred care, delivered closer to home. A copy of the plan can be found here.
The group meet on a monthly basis and are supported by a number of key system-wide groups as set out in the governance structure within the plan above.
