The NHS England Immigration Removal Centres Medicine Improvement Programme Working Group, with the Health and Justice Sector have reviewed the RPS Hospital Standards, alongside recommendations in the Shaw Review, and developed new professional standards for optimising medicines for people in secure environments.
The new standards will be hosted and published by the RPS. They are for use in England but may also be a useful reference in Wales and Scotland. The standards will be published in the following two editions:
- Immigration Removal Centres (Edition 1)
- Prisons, Young Offender Institutions and Secure Training Centres (Edition 2).
You can view a draft version of the Professional Standards for optimising medicines for people in secure environments.
