We’ve been running healthcare services in these challenging environments since 2012 and now provide care for more than 2,500 people including men, women and juveniles. Our services look after the physical and mental health care needs of all prisoners.

We operate round-the-clock, nurse-led healthcare including prisoner screening on arrival and all primary care such as minor surgery, in-patient units and prescribing. We also coordinate a wide range of other service providers, such as GP practices, to provide seamless care.

The safety of our team and the people we look after, particularly the most vulnerable, is our priority and we work closely with prison management. We also maximise the amount of ‘wing-based’ care given, which not only helps us to reduce risk posed by moving prisoners, but also helps improve waiting times and reduce the number of missed appointments.

Our motivated teams are driven by our belief that if you are a prisoner you should receive same level of healthcare that you would in the community. We know that improving prisoners’ short and long-term health reduces their likelihood of reoffending.

I have been very impressed with every aspect of health care at Bure. I see the team here as equal to the care I get from my GP surgery
