star this property answer text <p>Health services in prisons are commissioned by NHS England who are responsible for making assessments of the current provision of mental health assessments and treatment in the prison systems in England. In Wales health is devolved to the Welsh Government where separate arrangements are made for assessment.</p><p> </p><p>We take mental health provision very seriously and are committed to working closely with health partners in England and Wales to ensure that offenders are able to access the treatment and support required for their mental health needs.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise the importance of the prison environment on enabling better health outcomes. We are ensuring that each prisoner has a dedicated prison officer to support them and are implementing reforms to give all prisoners a key worker. This will help ensure that prisoners are better supported to attend scheduled health and mental health appointments and assessments to support their recovery. This will also ensure that a dedicated officer will be able to build a relationship with them and be in a better position to respond to changes in their behaviour or their mental well-being.</p>

Specific details of these conversations are not available.</p><p> </p><p>It is recognised there is a need to improve both research activity and the quality of data on mental health needs of people in prison. Recent reports from both the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman and the National Audit Office have highlighted these issues. The last comprehensive survey of mental health needs in prisons was commissioned by the Department in 1997.</p><p> </p><p>The Department, NHS England and Public Health England are working with the National Institute for Health Research to address this deficit, identifying key research priorities. Recently, NHS England has commissioned research on self-inflicted deaths in prisons as this is a priority issue due to high levels of self-harm and suicide recorded in prisons currently.</p><p> </p><p>Further work is currently underway by the Department, Public Health England, NHS England, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service and the Ministry of Justice to improve the quality of health data from prisons with a specific focus on mental health data.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England’s new clinical IT system will facilitate improvements in data quality and reporting on all aspects of healthcare in prisons, including mental health. To support this, NHS England is implementing clinical templates across the secure estate including mental health templates, as well as reviewing the current data set. A new and revised quality indicator set will be reported on from April 2018.</p>
