CNWL wins contract to provide primary healthcare to prisoners in Surrey
The mental and physical healthcare of men and women in four adult prisons across Surrey will be provided by CNWL from 1 April.
CNWL, which already provides mental healthcare across HMP Highdown, HMP Downview, HMP Send and HMP Coldingley, won the contract to provide primary healthcare within the four last year.
Under the contract CNWL will be providing all aspects of primary care within the prisons to replicate the service provision in the community.
This will include dental, opticians, podiatry and physio as required.
CNWL is also working in partnership with the charity RAPt with those prisoners on substitute prescribing pathways.
Chief Executive Claire Murdoch said: "This is good news! Our approach is to provide excellent healthcare in a caring and non-judgmental fashion and this is what we deliver."
