A healthy prison strategy for HMP Bristol.
University of the West of England, Bristol.
This report summarises progress in establishing a Healthy Prison strategy for HMP Bristol. It follows a period of consultancy with the prison commissioned by NHS Bristol, and carried out as follow-up to a 2007-8 Health Needs Assessment (HNA) conducted at the prison. The aims of this work were to:  assess and build commitment within the prison for a ‘healthy prison’ strategy;  produce a realistic and feasible plan for developing the strategy;  create a strategy group to lead and drive the project; and  form and publish key performance standards for the prison. A period of consultation preceded publication of this report, which involved interviews and meetings with a range of Prison Service and NHS stakeholders and close scrutiny of relevant reports and publications. It should be noted that work on this strategy is ongoing and now forms part of the core business of HMP Bristol.
