Mountbatten Coordination Centre

The Mountbatten Coordination Centre is a service for you, if you live on the Isle of Wight and
  • are living with any illness which may be life-threatening and may limit life expectancy to the next five years, or less
  • are an older person living with increasing frailty
The care and support we give centres on comfort and quality of life and takes into account all of your needs and wishes.

The centre is based at our Newport site, but reaches out to all parts of the Island. We work in partnership with other services which may be supporting you, such as General Practitioners (GPs), District Nurses, other Specialist Nurses and Social Workers.

How do I access the service?

After talking with you, your GP or another healthcare professional may feel it is appropriate to refer you to the Mountbatten Coordination Centre. One of our expert team will then contact you to arrange an appointment. 

How will the service help me?

After you have been referred by your GP, we will provide the following services depending on your needs
  • Initial and ongoing assessment of your needs by an expert Mountbatten professional
  • A full plan that is individual to you, where we will work with you and those close to you to express and record your wishes for the future
  • A telephone advice and support line 01983 533331, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for both you and those who are caring for you
  • Access to our Mountbatten Volunteer Service which may be able to provide a volunteer to visit you and support you at home
  • Access to activities in the John Cheverton Centre
  • A rapid response home visiting service for those who need urgent care and support
