In doing so it seeks to assist people in prison to experience the best health possible, improve their well-being and future life prospects. By improving the health of people whilst in prison, it will contribute to improving the health of the wider community upon release.

    The WCHS is a primary health model focused on enabling person-centred care to address specific health needs for incarcerated patients. Patients can complete a Health Service request to initiate health care and see a specific health care professional for their related needs. Referrals to each of the services is coordinated by the nursing team via a triage process and is monitored using the Hospital Based Corporate Information System (HBCIS).
