Offender Health: reducing health inequalities through improving the health of offenders

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

This workbook is a diagnostic approach to analyse the approach to offender health in a local area.



Through a series of questions and reference to evidence based interventions, it allows a group of local partners involved in working with offenders, to determine what would need to be done to reduce the inequalities in health of this group. It is one of a series of workbooks developed by the Health Inequalities National Support Team (HINST), while working with the 70 local authorities covering populations in England with the highest levels of deprivation and poorest health.
