Health and social care in prisons and young offender institutions, and healthcare in immigration removal centres
Clinks' response to The Care Quality Commission's consultation
The Care Quality Commision (CQC) and HM Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) have developed a joint inspection framework which intends to support CQC and HMIP to develop a holistic and coherent view of health within secure settings. It aims to hold providers to account but also work with them to identify wider health issues. Clinks' response and recommendations to the CQC are based on discussion with Clinks members at two workshops which we held in London and Leeds.
