The Network provides health care to adults and young people in contact with the forensic mental health and criminal justice systems in NSW, Australia.

Each year, the Network’s doctors, nurses and allied health staff care for more than 30,000 patients in NSW correctional centres, police cells, youth justice centres, inpatient settings and in the community. These staff also provide care to more than 40 per cent of the state’s forensic patients.

Patients in these settings can access primary care, drug and alcohol, mental health, population health, primary care, women’s and midwifery care, oral health, Aboriginal health, youth health, and a range of allied health services. The Network also plays a key role in intervention programs to divert people away from custody.
