Isle of Wight NHS Trust serves a resident population of 138,000 though boosted in holiday season and is one of the few truly integrated organisations in the country. We combine acute, ambulance, mental health and community services. The Trust is currently in the process of becoming Foundation Trust Status.

Most of the Island is semi-rural with miles of unspoilt bridleways through National Trust woods and chalk down land, offering spectacular coastal walks in areas of outstanding natural beauty. House prices compare favourably to the mainland and southern England with a wide choice of desirable property to suit all tastes.

Connections to the mainland are frequent and fast with ferry/rail links with Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington (London can be reached in approximately 90 minutes by rail from Southampton & Portsmouth).

We are also offering a welcome incentive of £20,000 plus up to £8,000 relocation expenses
