Probation Health Trainer Implementation Project - Evaluation

The key aims of this evaluation project were to explore the delivery and impact of the Probation-based Offender Health Trainer Implementation Project in Bury, Rochdale and Oldham, thereby generating learning to inform practice and research. A mixed-methods approach was taken, the main methods being:

  • interrogation and analysis of OHT data routinely collected using DCRS (led by UCLan)
  • use of the ‘Portsmouth Ready Reckoner’ Health Trainer Assessment Tool (led by UCLan)
  • construction of a small number of qualitative case studies (led by GMPT).
