Tell us how Covid-19 (coronavirus) affected healthcare in prison

We want to hear from people with first-hand experience of prison healthcare:

Have you received or tried to access healthcare in prison since March 2020?

Do you deliver, manage, or commission healthcare in prison?

Tell us how Covid-19 (coronavirus) affected prison healthcare

We want to find out:

  • How Covid-19 affected:
    • What healthcare was provided and what was stopped, and
    • How healthcare was delivered, for example, in person or online, in clinics or in cells
  • What it was like to receive healthcare during this period

If you decide to take part, you will be interviewed by a researcher from our team. The interview would take around 30-45 minutes.

We prefer to audio-record the conversation so that we don’t miss anything but everything you say in the interview is confidential, unless you say anything that concerns the researcher about your safety, or someone else’s.

We have written some information sheets that provide more details about what your participation would involve. Click the button that applies to you:
