For 6 years, Sara ran her own business, producing the Isle of Wight Health and Wellbeing Directory and delivering Wellbeing events to the community.Now retired, Sara spends part of her time caring for elderly relatives in Hampshire, as well as supporting her local Healthwatch team in whatever way she can.
