The time a person spends in prison is the ideal (and often only) opportunity to work with them to improve their overall wellbeing and to set them on the right track to manage their own health in future. Leaving prison healthy and well is a key factor in reducing the likelihood that a person will reoffend. Helping people to break the cycle of offending by restoring them to good health and equipping them with the support and tools they need to maintain this is a duty we undertake with the utmost pride.
