Sunshine, seascapes, scenery...this diamond-shaped island has a magic all of its own.

Just off England's south coast, this is one of the UK's sunniest, warmest places. Visitors flock here for the award-winning beaches, unspoilt scenery (more than half the island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and rich historical heritage. Property prices remain reasonable compared to the rest of the South East and crime rates are low. But this is no backwater: there are some world-class companies here, especially in engineering and technology.

It's nice to be close to our friends in and around London, but to have such a different way of life. There's hardly any crime here; I think the local paper is often at a loss for news

Boots have 5 Health & Beauty stores and 6 local pharmacy stores. Isle of Wight PCT is amongst the most progressive in the country, often involving pharmacists in the trial of new services. We encourage networking with formal CPD and regular meetings as well as plenty of more informal events on the calendar including family barbecues and quiz nights.
