HEALTHWATCH Isle of Wight has asked Islanders about the health and social care services that matter most to them.

The watchdog has launched a survey asking which areas it should investigate, from autism to hospital appointments.

Over the last year, Healthwatch has tackled maternity services, child and adolescent mental healthcare and services for deaf people.

A workshop, held at Newclose Cricket Club to launch the survey, was attended by community representatives. They highlighted mental health issues, complaints, navigating the system, self care and autism services as areas of concern.
