Support and treatment offered is tailored to the needs of the individual to promote recovery and reduce re-offending.

The team works with numerous agencies such as probation, police, GP, voluntary and community sector and other healthcare providers. They assist with Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA); Multi Agency Case Conference (MACC); Approved Premises (AP); Integrated Offender Management (IOM); support secondary care health pathways and act as secure service locality supervisors for individuals in secure intensive support facilities across the country.

Secondary care team referrals are only considered from care co-ordinators, to joint work navigation of the criminal justice pathways and treatment remains the responsibility of the secondary care team.

The team is small and does not have resource or provision for care co-ordination, crisis or urgent care management, but will signpost to appropriate services where possible.
