PERFORMANCE: The south east London PCT, which has commissioned Harmoni for Health to provide services at the prison, said there had been two deaths in custody since April.

A report to the south east London cluster’s joint quality and safety sub committee in September said: “There are no patient representation groups in the prison and the provider has been asked to initiate these.”

The cluster also commissions health services for HMP Brixton and said this was being turned into a Category C resettlement prison in April 2012, which would change the profile of care inside.
