Abstract

Scotland is at a cross-roads in relation to the provision of health care for prisoners and those within the criminal/community justice systems. In this paper we review the opportunities afforded by policy and structural changes, integrated within health care systems to make prison health a true public health service. The challenges that have to be overcome in achieving this aim are identified and discussed.
