What is it like to work in a prison?
Find out for yourself!
We are running a free virtual conference to clinicians who would like to find out more about what it is like to work with secure establishments, such as prisons.
The event, hosted by Convenzis, will take place on Tuesday 9th March 2021.
This event aims to offer medical professionals and healthcare workers an opportunity to find out what it is like to work and deliver healthcare within a secure setting from those who are already doing it. HSH hopes to offer unique insight into the fascinating world of prisons, secure children’s units and forensic psychiatry hospitals from the perspective of a physical healthcare provider. In doing so, we hope to demonstrate the opportunities for portfolio working, challenge, learning, development and variety that this area of medicine can offer.
The event is aimed at individuals who are living/working in, or looking to relocate to, the Bristol, Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire or Wiltshire regions, and those in the following professions:
Allied Health Professionals
Advanced Clinical Practitioners
We also welcome newly / soon-to-be qualified registered professionals and those looking to return to nursing.
The choice of sessions means that there will be something for everyone throughout the day.

Welcome to Hanham Secure Health
“Striving for continuity and equivalence of healthcare for patients across the secure estate”
At Hanham Secure Health (HSH), we deliver primary healthcare services to patients within the secure estate and we strive to ensure that these services are of an equitable standard and have equitable accessibility as would be expected in the community.
Individuals held within secure establishments, such as prisons, secure children’s homes, rehabilitation units and forensic psychiatry units, face a range of challenges and barriers in accessing and receiving primary care services that equitable to services within the community. These individuals often arrive into the secure establishments from circumstances where they have been particularly vulnerable and marginalised and having had little or no previous healthcare support.
