Draft IW NHS Trust Strategy 2016 - 2020

Draft Trust Strategy Consultation – We need your views

Working “Beyond Boundaries” to be the preferred choice for sustainable integrated care

Over the last three months work has been underway to review the Isle of Wight NHS Trust’s strategy.

One year on from the publication of the NHS Five Year Forward View and recognizing the success of My Life a Full Life in attracting development funding, we have taken the opportunity to review our current Strategy “Beyond Boundaries”

Our purpose in doing this is to ensure we are concentrating on the right strategic priorities. We need to ensure we are ready to embrace the opportunities that My Life a Full Life will bring to the wider health and wellbeing system, including social care and housing and therefore we need to be sure we are concentrating on the right strategic priorities. 

We have undertaken an examination of the factors impacting on and influencing the delivery of good quality, safe, sustainable, efficient and effective services to people and we understand the factors limiting or inhibiting the delivery of these.

The static population of the Island is one of the oldest in the country with over 65s. Currently we have 50% more people over the age of 65 compared to the England average and in 20 years we predict we will still have significantly more. 1 in 3 over 65s are likely to get dementia and factors like these influence the type of care we need to deliver.

We have defined our strategic priorities, the things we will do as follows:

  1. Align sustainable services to the needs of our patients, carers and people who use our services by
    1. Designing efficient and effective treatment and care pathways
    2. Maximising the person’s experience
    3. Providing 24/7 community services for the range of people with mental health need
    4. Providing services across the seven days of the week
  2. Become a centre of excellence for the care of older people
  3. Provide excellent end of life care
  4. Become excellent in the provision of dementia services

The work also states that our strategic enablers, what we will put in place, are:

  1. A workforce embracing integration
  2. Efficient processes with minimum waste
  3. An IT Infrastructure and Processes geared to enabling effective delivery and support, aligned with the My Life a Full Life priorities
