Abstract

Over ten years ago the Review of Mental Health and Learning Disability Equal Lives concluded that sectors and services should aspire towards a holistic, or bio-psycho-social model, encapsulated by inclusive and person centred approaches. Ten years later the Transforming Care for People with Learning Disabilities report made a similar plea, reiterated in the Coates Report and Prison Safety and Reform paper, for both those with learning difficulties and disabilities. In line with the latter report, this paper describes the rationale for use and delivery of a computerised screening system providing an equitable approach, and how this can be embedded across prison settings.
