Abstract:

This paper outlines the health and social care needs of offenders and the challenges faced by those providing them with healthcare. It proposes a shared and dependant relationship between security, health and social care teams. A summary review of the literature in regard of what works is presented with a suggestion of the key learning points. The joint approach depends on shared values, shared principles, and a shared vision of what is needed and how it should be delivered. A model of service based on a key set of health and social care pathways is then described and an example of a care pathway, the integrated drug treatment strategy, is described in more detail. The broad approach is essential in meeting the moral imperative of improving the outcomes of offenders in relation to their health, social exclusion and life experiences.
