Prisoners should be cared for by a health service that assesses and meets their health needs while in prison and which promotes continuity of health and social care on release. The standard of health service provided is equivalent to that which prisoners could expect to receive in the community.

Who has to register?
Providers delivering regulated activities in prisons are subject to registration requirements in the same way as any other setting; BUT
Services provided under direct contract with a government department;
Including where HM Prison Service is the provider (eg nurses employed by the prison) – part of MoJ
A CQC inspector joins HMIP at all full inspections and some follow up. Inspection activities are co-ordinated on site
HMIP and CQC share information to prevent duplication of effort. This may be used to assess registration and monitor compliance with HSCA
CQC and HMIP will work together to address concerns at the appropriate level of enforcement to ensure improvement
HMIP and CQC meet quarterly to review recent inspections, share training, support joint work
Good Practice examples
The use of telemedicine enabled prisoners to have fast access to secondary care, with little disruption to the prison regime
The systematic approach to ‘prized medications’, including opiates, was helping prisoners to access evidence-based pain relief, and the prison to ensure that the availability of tradable medications was at a minimum.
The practice of ensuring that prisoners received the outcome of their diagnostic tests as soon as possible helped alleviate unnecessary worry
Good practice examples 2
A designated IDTS gym and individual exercise programmes had been developed which provided prisoners undertaking methadone reduction regimes with additional motivation and support.
The named nurse system for triage operated effectively and provided a good service to prisoners.
A registered mental health nurse saw every referred young person as soon as possible and completed a mental health assessment.
