Spectrum is one of the largest providers of prison healthcare services in the UK. We deliver high quality, award winning healthcare to more than 13,000 patients at 19 prison estates of all categories. Our priority and our commitment is to ensure people in prison are able to access the same healthcare provision as is available in the community.
We support our patients throughout their time in prison, caring for their immediate health and helping people to take an active interest in their own wellbeing. This support continues after they are released, enabling people to access community groups and services so they can continue looking after their health and other needs in the community. Our approach helps to address health inequalities, support successful rehabilitation and reduce reoffending.
We lead on a comprehensive package of healthcare within the prison environment, working with carefully selected partners to support all aspects of our patients’ health and wellbeing. We deliver our services onsite in the prison as much as possible and arrange external healthcare appointments where necessary.
