Practice Plus Group is Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs that are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise that no single health/well-being factor can be taken in isolation from other motivational issues that might impact a person’s care.

HMP Lewes is a category B local prison, also known as a local remand prison, for adult men near Brighton in West Sussex.
