Community & mental health inspection reports for Trust HQ Princes Dock can be found at Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Inspection carried out on 22 October 2013

During a routine inspection

We carried out this inspection alongside Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP). The Care Quality Commission and HMIP routinely coordinate inspections of prisons and healthcare providers.

We looked at what support was provided to prisoners who experienced mental ill health by the trust.

People who used the service told us that staff were helpful and always treated them and spoke to them in a respectful way.

We found that prisoners knew what services were provided by the trust within the prison and how to access the service. People who used the service told us it was easy to access and staff were responsive to their needs.

We found that patients� needs were assessed and care and treatment was planned and delivered in line with their individual care plan. We found recordings on assessments and care plans to be of a high standard, containing concise and detailed information about peoples care and treatment needs.

We saw good evidence of joint working by the trust across the prison community where concerns and risks to prisoners including self harm and risk of suicide had been identified..

We found that patients were cared for by staff who were supported to deliver care and treatment safely and to an appropriate standard.
