One Award Winner
Best Healthcare Initiative in a Community or Criminal Justice Setting
There are thousands of individuals working in healthcare roles in community and criminal justice settings, with patients and service users who have complex and evolving healthcare needs.
In this section:
Who is eligible?
Programmes delivered by employers, teams and individuals that not only deal with urgent care needs in the criminal justice sector, but also address long-term health and wellbeing challenges for individuals with a range of challenges. Often not in the spotlight, healthcare in the justice sector is just as vital as public services for the wider population, and for staff working in this sector, the last 18 months have provided even more challenging working environments and health concerns for prison populations.
Nominees for this award will demonstrate the creativity and delivery of healthcare programmes that have made a difference to the workforce of which they serve, and to health and wellbeing outcomes for patients and service users. Often difficult and complex programmes working with other agencies can make a huge difference to the future outcomes for individuals, with improved healthcare outcomes just as pivotal as in any other setting. These people make outstanding contributions that make a difference not only to the immediate care of individuals but also to the wider health and justice sector. Anyone can make a nomination, including members of the public.
