You will find information about how we regulate health and care in the criminal justice system and work with other inspectorates in our guidance for providers.

We work with HM Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) and other inspectorates to protect and promote the interests and rights of people who use health and social care services in secure settings.

This includes:

  • health and social care in prisons and young offender institutions (prisons for young people aged 15-21)
  • healthcare in immigration removal centres (holding centres for detainees awaiting decisions on their residency status or deportation following an unsuccessful application)
  • police custody facilities.
