star this property answer text <p>People who are sentenced by a court to imprisonment after conviction may be assessed by a psychiatrist in prison if it is thought that their mental disorder is of a nature or degree that requires treatment in hospital. Section 47 of the Mental Health Act 1983 is considered when transferring prisoners. Proposed changes are being made to the way in which inpatient secure beds are commissioned with the aim of improving timely allocation. Time scales are monitored by NHS England and include an expectation of 14-day prison transfers. The transfer time starts on completion of the first medical assessment and stops once the prisoner has been admitted to hospital.</p><p> </p><p>HMP Northumberland has a professional and supportive Mental Health team engaged in supporting men with both mental health and complex needs.
