UK NHS takes on prison healthcare

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's Department of Health (DoH) has been given responsibility for healthcare in England's prison service, currently under the remit of the Home Office. The measure, which takes effect from April 2003, is the first step in a five-year process to incorporate prison healthcare into the National Health Service. The government is discussing with the Welsh Assembly similar plans for the prison service in Wales. The two countries have a prison population of 72,000, of which almost 4,400 are women.
