Every Friday lunctime for the next few weeks,  Public Health England's Health and Justice team will post a short video on the approach they are taking with prisons and prison healthcare to manage the risks and impacts of COVID-19.

These short videos aim to share current experiences and practice to support public health response in other countries. Please send any feedback to sunita.sturup-toft@phe.gov.uk  

Please note, the videos are informal - they are meant to provide general principles of working and any data or information is only correct at the time of filming.


Planned schedule:

The videos are planned to be uploaded every Friday, 12pm (GMT+1). As the team are involved in active response, it may not always be possible to stick to this!
