Notification of investigation: management of chronic health conditions in prisons

  • Written by: Communications Team

The HSIB has launched an investigation regarding the management of chronic health conditions in prisons.


Any person, group or organisation can share cases for potential investigation via the safety awareness form. Each submission is reviewed against our criteria, and an important part of assessment is whether we can learn something new that improves practice across the health system. We use a range of approaches focusing on establishing cause and identifying risk.
