Our Priorities

The current Clinical Commissioning Strategy builds on our priorities highlighted in our previous documents, and it also reflects the work we have been doing with our key partners to create a new five year Health and Social Care Vision for the Isle of Wight.

The joint aim of the IOW CCG, IOW NHS Trust and the IOW Council is to promote longer, healthier and more independent lives for the people of the Isle of Wight. Primary, secondary, and social care, all have individual contributions to make to this, but we recognise our overall effectiveness and efficiency is dependent upon developing a highly integrated model of care.

The services that are delivered need to focus on prevention and self-management and be of the highest standards of safety and quality which can be delivered within the resources we have as an Island.

We have consulted with our stakeholders, both directly and through the My Life A Full Life (MLAFL) process, who have confirmed that they support our strategic direction.

 The final agreed priorities are:

  • Self Care and Self Management
  • Primary Care Services
  • Integrated Care
  • Urgent Care
  • Supporting People to improve their Mental Health

 Other Service Areas and Key Enablers include:

  • Children
  • Planned care
  • Safeguarding
  • Information technology
  • Workforce development and cultural change
  • Carers
  • Patient engagement

These priorities will inform the CCG Commissioning Intentions which reflect how the CCG will deliver against its ambitions within the commissioning cycle. The CCG has also produced a Plan on a Page 2014-2019 which summarises the strategy.

The CCG along with its partners in the IOW NHS Trust and IOW Council have also agreed a health and social care system wide summary Plan on a Page.
