How many prisoners a week are apply to see a doctor?


How many are actually being seen?


If so, how long does it take on average for a prisoner to see a doctor?

I am not concerned about prisoners who receive daily medication from nurses.  I am only interested in prisoners that have applied to see a doctor.



Since 1 January 2021 a total of 625 prisoners applied to see a GP.


From 1 January 2021 until 30 April 2021, 357 prisoners have been seen by a GP: This is an average of 21 prisoners per week


​Seen by GP

​April ​95

268 applications were discussed but not seen by a GP as their request could be dealt with via a registered nurse, for example a repeat prescription. A nurse will determine the level and speed as to when they will be seen.


The average wait for a prisoner to see a GP is 2 to 3 days, however there are exceptions to this (emergencies / specific GP requested by Prisoner)
