Registering patients prior to their release from the secure residential estate

GPs have a contractual obligation to support with registering patients prior to their release from the secure residential estate and are asked to ensure that processes are in place to support this.

Plans are also progressing to enable patients to register with a GP in their place of detention in the same way as they register with a community GP. This will be rolled out next year in a phased approach across England.
