A fresh approach to prison healthcare in the UK
At Correct Care UK, we’re passionate about patient-centred healthcare, delivered without judgement. Regardless of each prisoner’s history or environment, we work as an integrated team to improve their health and wellbeing and help reduce reoffending.
It’s an approach that draws upon our 20+ years’ experience delivering health services in the custodial environment via our parent company Wellpath in the US and sister company Correct Care Australasia.
Together we care for more than 300,000 patients across 550 adult and young offender institutes every day. In the prison community, we deliver all the same services any community needs – from health checks to GP services, care for long-term conditions, and mental health, substance misuse, dental, physiotherapy and allied health services.
Correct Care UK has announced the appointment of Dr. Jake Hard to the position of Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Hard brings with him a wealth of experience in the provision of patient-centred healthcare to improve patient’s health and wellbeing in custody.
I am delighted to welcome Jake to CCUK and look forward to benefitting from his extensive experience in providing healthcare in custodial environments."
"His leadership and contributions in the Health and Justice arena both within the United Kingdom and internationally, will be a great complement to our more than 20 years of experience delivering health services in custodial environments through our parent company Wellpath in the US, and sister company Correct Care Australasia.Kate Pearce,
