Prescribed places of detention: health needs assessment toolkit (2015)
Health needs assessment (HNA) is a systematic method for reviewing the health issues facing a population, leading to agreed priorities and resource allocation that will improve health and reduce inequalities. The toolkit provides a consistent approach for producing a HNA, which can inform regional or national views of need across places of detention. It reflects the diverse health needs of different populations within detained populations, e.g. women, older prisoners, young people, those with a learning disability and those with a physical disability.

Managing persistent pain in secure settings (2013)
This document is an overview of best practice in managing persistent pain and describes how this practice might be implemented in secure environments, including prisons, police custody and immigration removal centres. It empowers clinicians by supporting the evidence-based decisions they make within a context of multidisciplinary pain management. The document also acknowledges the challenges posed by difficult clinical presentations and the particular environment. It is not a comprehensive guide to managing all pain conditions but instead offers guidance with the most commonly identified challenges for pain management in the secure environment. It does not discuss interventions that can be delivered only in secondary care.
