It’s that time again when Healthwatch Isle of Wight would strongly urge Isle of Wight residents to complete their priority survey.
The survey consists of a list of the top 20 most common Health or Care themes that have been reported to Healthwatch Isle of Wight over the past 12 months, such as Assisted Living, Neurology Services, Occupational therapy, and asks that people choose their top 5 priorities.
The areas that receive the highest number of votes will become the next areas that Healthwatch Isle of Wight will begin to work on.
Healthwatch Isle of Wight worked in partnership with the IOW Safeguarding Adults Board to produce a film about mate crime. The film was developed with the involvement of local people to raise awareness of mate crime and was presented at the IOW Annual Safeguarding conference in March 2017.
Since then the film has been published on Youtube and has been shared with Martin Clarke Learning & Development Manager at TACT (UK's largest Fostering and Adoption charity) who said: 'Thanks for sharing this excellent quality and very informative film' and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has tweeted about the film to their 27.5K followers.
