This guide to prisons, remand centres and young offenders institutions in England and Wales was written by a former prisoner with first-hand experience, as an inmate, of more than 50 of Britain's prisons. The prison-by-prison detail has been compiled from official reports supplemented by questionnaire replies from inmates and staff. It includes practical information on each establishment: visiting hours; workshops; education; chaplaincy; medical services; and sports facilities. Further sections provide advice on useful organizations, foreign prisoners, health problems, financial matters, welfare, religion, discharge grants, release, women prisoners and young offenders. An advice section contains additional information on prisoner's rights and the law, spanning reception to release. The final section summarizes the reports produced by the Prison Service, the Prison Ombudsman and HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, together with all ad hoc reports and inspection reports published by HMCIP in the previous year.
