NHS England Health and Justice is responsible for commissioning offender healthcare services for: HMPs Foston and Sudbury.

Prisoners are not typical of the general population with regard to their health needs as they have a disproportionately higher prevalence of ill health. The commissioner and provider will collaborate to ensure that prisoners receive a healthcare service that is equitable to that available to all NHS users. NHS England are seeking suitably qualified and experienced healthcare providers (including NHS providers, private sector organisations social enterprise/third sector organisations) for the provision of an integrated healthcare service. While demonstrating value for money and innovation in improving the health of prisoners. Collaborative and consortia bids are welcome showing quality, innovation and economies of scale through these collaborations. Services being sought include the provision of comprehensive and integrated primary care led services. The successful provider will need to consider:
