the prison healthcare unit. It only dispenses medicines to people in
the prison. The team is an integrated part of the wider healthcare team
within the prison and provides reviews for people with long-term

separate company within the prison. The ownership structure will change in
April 2020 and the need for registration will be reviewed then.
