Further needs assessment required

Adults :: Offenders :: Further needs assessment required

• Further needs assessment is required to compare the service utilisation and needs in these prisons with similar prisons and with other prisons in the area
• User involvement should be encouraged as part of future needs assessment with better mechanisms to collate service user views
• As systems develop, incidence and prevalence of disease conditions needs to be gathered
• The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of services that are currently provided need to be considered
• Service use projections should be calculated over 3–5 years and 10 years. This will be needed to consider the increasing prison population and increase in the age range of the prisoners.
• Further analysis needs to be included of all unplanned admissions to hospital
