Gordon Hannah, Clinical Manager, HMP Barlinnie, working within NHSGGC Prison Healthcare.
I have been involved with the committee since December only. This coincided with the transfer of responsibility for healthcare services for prisoners, from the Scottish Prison Service to the National Health Service. Although I have only been involved with the committee a short time, I find the professionalism and knowledge base of the committee members of a very high standing. The committee is very influential and can direct strategic developments in the nursing profession within the board’s area The ultimate aim of the committee is to improve upon the nursing service and achieve robust, consistent, evidence based practice within all areas of nursing
