Study: cancer care in prison -- NHS Healthcare staff perspectives

In England many people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Little is known about the impact that being in prison has on the care of people diagnosed with cancer and more information is needed to better understand the challenges of managing care for people with cancer who are in prison. This research aims to fill that gap in knowledge by exploring the views of people with cancer, prison staff and prison and cancer health professionals.
