Our Health and Justice Services

We provide high quality, patient focused healthcare services in a range of settings which come together as Health and Justice Services (H&J). We make sure everyone has access to the healthcare they need, in any circumstances, as they would in the community.

This includes secure environments (such as prisons and secure hospital units), as well as supporting people in police custody. Our H&J services also include a highly regarded, independent Death in Custody Review Service.

Across our secure environments, we work in partnership to provide comprehensive primary care services, including nursing and GPs, sexual health, substance misuse, podiatry, physiotherapy, optometry, mental health – whatever is needed. We look after our patients physical and mental health, providing on-site healthcare wherever possible, and arranging for external healthcare when required. We also support our patients to continue accessing the right healthcare services when they return to the community.

In police custody, we provide a health assessment for the people we meet, signposting them to the appropriate healthcare services.

Through our Death in Custody Review Service, we deliver high quality clinical reviews, helping NHS commissioners to continue improving prison healthcare services.

We have a clear focus on quality and innovation. We involve our patients, taking on board their suggestions, so we can improve our services and support patients in improving their health. The success of our approach is evidenced by the feedback we receive from our patients and in the multiple awards we have won for our services.
