n 2019 NHS England commissioned the Institute for Public Safety, Crime & Justice (IPSCJ) at the University of Northampton to review the effectiveness of healthcare services provided to women who have recently given birth or who are pregnant at HMP Peterborough. Two years on NHS England have re-commissioned the IPSCJ to review progress made against the recommendations of the 2019 review. This chapter of the report provides a broad overview into the background of care of women in the criminal justice system and particularly the healthcare of perinatal women followed by an overview of the 2019 review at Peterborough and the rationale for the current revisit of that review.
