Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs Custody-Community Transitions Working Group’s call for evidence
Clinks has responded to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs call for evidence on recommendations for improving the transitions between custody and community by people who use drugs. In our response we recommend that NHS England and the Care Quality Commission should continue to monitor access to co-ordinated care for people with co-occurring mental health and substance misuse conditions as the new prison mental health and substance misuse service specifications are implemented. We also recommend the links between treatment in custody and the community must be strengthened to provide continuity of care.
