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.
Leaders from the health, care, community and voluntary sectors have thanked key workers across the Isle of Wight for their ‘phenomenal response’ to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Isle of Wight Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) met on Wednesday 24 June to review the Island’s new Public Health Strategy and plans for supporting the health and care sectors as they recover from COVID-19.
The ICP is made up of senior leaders from the Island’s NHS Trust, Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Council, Primary Care Networks, charities and community organisations.
Vaughan Thomas, Chairman of Isle of Wight Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) and Isle of Wight NHS Trust, said: “We have to recognise that our organisations have done a huge amount of work in difficult circumstances over the last few months.
“There has been a phenomenal response from key workers across the Island, people in health, in social care, community care and in the community and voluntary sectors that have given a huge amount to keep our community safe.
“We need to do everything we possibly can as leaders to ensure that we support their health and wellbeing, not just in times of crisis but also as we move forward and recover from COVID-19.”
The ICP adopted and discussed how it can support the recently published Public Health Strategy for the Isle of Wight, adopted by Isle of Wight Council last week. You can read the Public Health Strategy here.
The ICP oversees the delivery of the Isle of Wight Health and Care Plan, which was published in October 2019. You can find out more about the Isle of Wight Health and Care Plan here.
