PDF (Healthcare in Irish prisons) - Published Version

In a report dated 18 April 2011 – Guidance on Physical Healthcare in a Prison Context (hereinafter referred to as ‘2011 report’) I drew attention to the standard of healthcare in our prisons. I stated that the Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) had identified deficiencies in the standard of healthcare provided in a number of Irish Prisons and that I concurred with this statement. I also stated that, from my inspections of prisons, I had concluded that the standard of healthcare varied from prison to prison. In my 2011 report I dealt with the general right to health that all citizens are entitled to. In addition, I detailed the right of prisoners to healthcare in a prison context.
