Website Launch: Exploring the History of Prisoner Health

A new website, Exploring the History of Prisoner Health - or histprisonhealth.com - has been launched by the team (co-PIs Dr Catherine Cox (CHOMI, UCD) and Professor Hilary Marland (CHM, University of Warwick)) researching the Wellcome Trust-funded project, 'Prisoners, Medical Care and Entitlement to Health in England and Ireland, 1850-2000'.



Policy Workshop

Exploring the History of Prisoner Health, has been launched in advance of the project's upcoming policy workshop, The Prison and Mental Health - From Confinement to Diversion, which is going to be held in the Shard, London, 12 February. The workshop itself aims  to explore the potential for historians, criminologists, NGOs, policy makers and prison service employees to share ideas and information around the theme of mental health in the prison system.

Project Themes

The website's blog details some of the main project research strands on prisoner mental illness, physical health, juvenile prisoners, political prisoners, as well as the Prison Medical Service. Content will be developed as research progresses and new strands come on board.
