The Isle of Wight NHS Trust is unique in England as it provides physical, mental and ambulance services for the Isle of Wight PCT.

It runs St Mary's Hospital, Isle of Wight and the Sevenacres mental health unit. The Trust has established an emergency care hub at the hospital where social workers have joined ambulance crews, mental health teams and district nurses are based together.[1] A helipad was installed in May 2013 to permit rapid transfer to specialist care on the mainland when necessary.[2]

The Sevenacres mental health unit was cristicised by CQC inspectors in November 2013 because patients were unclear about their care plans and were not always involved in decisions about their care or treatment.[3]

In November 2014 the Trust established a ‘strategic estates partnership’ with Ryhurst Ltd, a property management company in a deal which could be worth up to £25m. It is planned to rationalise the existing 21 sites over which the Trust operates and have some community care hubs.[4]

The Isle of Wight NHS is one of the areas selected to pilot Integrated primary and acute care systems under the Five Year Forward View. [5]
