Prison and Offender Research in Social Care and Health (North East, Yorkshire and Humberside) - Evaluation

In collaboration with colleagues at the University of the West of England, UCLan’s Healthy & Sustainable Settings Unit led the Prison Health Research Network (PHRN)’s Public Health Workstream (http://www.ohrn.nhs.uk). This evaluation was commissioned by the Prison Health Research Network and aims to evaluate the developmental activity of the PHRN’s North East Hub – exploring what developmental activity has been carried out by the Prison Health Research Network’s North East Hub and how effective it has been. Using a self-reporting questionnaire and focus group research, the objectives of the project were:

  • to scope and report on the developmental activity of the Prison Health Research Network’s NE Hub
  • to carry out an inclusive consultative process with the NE Hub Steering Group and other stakeholders
  • to liaise between the Prison Health Research Network, the Department of Health: Prison Health and the NE PHRN Hub to ensure involvement and collaboration, and to maximise synergy
  • to present findings in the form of an action-focused development report.
