Prisoners get the same healthcare and treatment as anyone outside of prison.
Treatment is free but has to be approved by a prison doctor or member of the healthcare team.
Prisons don’t have hospitals, but many have in-patient beds.
Most problems are dealt with by the healthcare team. If they can’t, the prison may:
- get an expert to visit the prison
- arrange for treatment in an outside hospital
