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.
We are already exploring how technology can improve care for people.
Recent trials of technology in speech and language therapy and an app to scan people's skin for potential problems have proven successful.
A number of care homes across the Island use telehealth to monitor their residents' vital signs and respond to any changes.
This shows how technology can improve how health and care professionals communicate and enables people to access the care they need quickly and easily, when it suits them.
