The key to improving healthcare for people in contact with probation lies in four main areas: commissioning, policy, practice, and
research.

We have created a toolkit for healthcare commissioners which includes:
Information on the likely health needs of people in contact with probation
An overview of the roles and responsibilities of different organisations
Potential models of good practice to pilot recommendations for each of the areas key areas for improvement listed above.
