Prison Network

Jo Cooke and the Public Health and Inequalities (PHI) theme of NIHR CLAHRC YH have worked with Nat Wight (honorary GP Consultant for Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust) in developing a research network establishing pathways into prisons in order to undertake research.  This is in recognition of the ingrained health inequalities of this cohort.

This culminated in an inaugural network meeting held on 22nd March 2016 attracting 60 participants. Our findings were then presented at the Prison Health Symposium in Glasgow on 18th May 2016. We have been invited to lead on the offender health theme of the national Contact, Help, Advice and Information Network (CHAIN) network.
