Dental care for prisons

Whitemoor


 

Whitemoor is a maximum security prison for men in Category A and B. It is one of eight High Security prisons. The prison focuses on settlement (helping those convicted of serious offences to make positive use of long sentences) and resettlement (reducing the risk of reoffending through assessment, work, education and offending behaviour programmes).

The prison includes a Dangerous and Severe Personality Disorder Unit. The Fens Unit is part of the national DSPD Programme of the Health Partnerships Directorate, providing thorough assessment and a fully worked out treatment model.

Whitemoor also houses a Close Supervision Centre (CSC). The unit prepares prisoners who pose a severe risk to others, to return to a normal prison environment.
