Clinks are pleased to publish updated versions of our two key guides to the health and care system, for the voluntary sector working in criminal justice:

Navigating the health landscape in England

This resource provides an overview of the health commissioning landscape, explaining the roles of organisations with direct commissioning responsibilities as well as key organisations in a commissioning support role.  It covers the commissioning arrangements in secure settings, as well as for people with convictions in the community, and highlights where voluntary sector organisations working with people in the criminal justice system and their service users can influence health and care provision.

Featuring new and updated sections on:

  • Local Authority Adult Social Services
  • Police and Crime Commissioners
  • NHS England Regional Commissioning

Rights and complaints procedures for health and care services

This resource provides guidance on what to do if a person you are working with has not received the standard of health or social care to which they are entitled, for voluntary sector organisations working with people in the criminal justice system.

Newly updated to include information on the Care Act (2014) and how to challenge if a person’s social care needs are not being met.
