IW End of Life Care Strategy

End of Life Care is a key priority for the Isle of Wight. The changing health and social care landscape has necessitated a review of our local end of life care services and prompted the development of an up to date strategy for end of life care on the Island, to reflect the current and future needs of the population and ensure that excellent end of life care is available to all.

The End of Life Care Strategy 2015–2020 for the Isle of Wight has been developed in line with national initiatives and local need, as highlighted in the Isle of Wight’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and the Five Year Health and Social Care Vision.
