The Network provides a range of clinical, strategic and operational services. 

Health care services for patients are provided by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and include specialist medical officers, 24/7 nursing care and a range of Allied Health consultations.

Specialist services include Primary Care, Population Health, Drug and Alcohol, Mental Health, Women’s Health, Dental and Oral Health, Aboriginal Health and Adolescent Health.

Further to these specialist services, the Network plays a key role in diverting patients away from custody through intervention in the courts, establishing healthcare linkages with community based health services and supporting continuity of care in the community post release.

The Network continues to expand the range of services and levels of expertise as it develops health interventions to allow the Network to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by incarceration and detention.

In addition to those in custody or detention, our consumers now include released individuals, the families of inmates and detainees, populations at high risk of incarceration and the mentally ill.
