Prisoners are entitled to the same healthcare and treatment as anyone outside prison.

This guide offers information and advice if you are supporting someone in prison to access healthcare.

Do you have a loved one in a London prison?

If you have a loved one in a London prison with health problems, we want to hear from you. 

Pact is piloting a new service with the NHS, offering families the chance to shape how prison healthcare services are delivered and developed. We support families and loved ones to share their experiences of prison healthcare – and help prisons and healthcare providers to listen to them.
