Share your experience of healthcare in prison

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

Have you left prison within the last 18 months?

Do you manage or deliver healthcare in prison?

Tell us about your experiences of prison healthcare

We want to find out:

– what works well

– what doesn’t work well

– whether the health needs of people in prison are met

– what improvements could be made

This is Sue: she’s a researcher on the study.

If you decide to take part, Sue will interview you. The interview would take around 30-45 minutes.

Sue prefers to audio-record the conversation so that she doesn’t miss anything but everything you say in the interview is confidential, unless you say anything that concerns Sue about your safety, or someone else’s.

We have written some information sheets that provide more details about what your participation would involve:

If you have left prison in the last 18 months for more information click the button that applies to you

If you provide or manage the delivery of healthcare in prison please click the button for more information

Interviews will be taking place up until the end of summer 2020, so if you’re thinking of taking part, please get in touch with Sue on s.bellass@leeds.ac.uk or 0113 343 6952.
