Health and Social Care Needs and Quality Indicators in Probation
Revolving Doors, a member of VSCE Health & Wellbeing Alliance partner Clinks, has partnered with the University of Lincoln to set out to improve healthcare for people on probation by developing a set of standards & quality indicators for health improvement.
The project, led by Coral Sirdifield, was driven by the knowledge that many people under probation supervision are in poor health, but do not access care until crisis point. Often, services do not meet their needs. To change this, the study set out to know more about these individuals’ health and social care needs, what services they access, their experiences when accessing services, and which of their needs are met and unmet.
The project focused on improving data collection and developing quality indicators to measure and monitor health outcomes and the quality of the care that people under probation supervision receive.
