Health in Justice

We are the UK’s leading independent provider of healthcare services in prisons and youth offender establishments.

We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history. That’s why we’re proud to deliver quality healthcare in some of the most challenging environments; care that is equal to what you receive in the community. We’re passionate about making a difference to the lives of prisoners by improving their health, securing their wellbeing and helping to reduce reoffending behaviour.

We deliver round-the-clock healthcare to more than 40,000 patients at over 45 prisons of all categories. Prisons are a community like any other and we offer all of the health services any community needs in one place and with a single team. These range from reception health checks on arrival and regular GP services, to help with substance misuse, mental health, chronic or long-term conditions, podiatry, physiotherapy and optometry.

Collaboration is the key to success, and we partner with commissioning bodies to assess the needs of each establishment. We then work closely with prison staff to deliver improved outcomes, reduced waiting times and the very best frontline healthcare for prisoners. We’re proud of our track record in improving the long-term health of offenders and lowering the rates of emergency hospital admissions. Our work has won numerous awards, received praise in a large number of successful CQC/HMIP reports and had excellent feedback from patients and their families.

The benefits of our health in justice services include:

1. Patient involvement: Patients and ex-patients are involved in developing services within the prisons.
2. Compliance: Our services comply with all relevant Department of Health and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) policies.
3. Access: Our services meet the operational and regime hours of the prisons.
