About us

We are the Health in Justice market leader, providing healthcare services in over 30 prisons to more than 22,000 offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Well being Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/well being factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
