Care UK is the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to over 25,000 offenders in 41 prisons across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care. At HMP Wormwood Scrubs there is a large healthcare centre which has 20 inpatient mental health beds, 2 GP inpatient beds and a day care facility for patients with mental health problems, providing holistic therapies. In the Healthcare Day Unit, we provide Consultant led clinics, podiatry, dentistry and imaging. There are also a number of consulting rooms both across the main prison. On each of the wings there is a primary care facility incorporating a GP's clinic and area for dispensing of medication.
