Guide for use:

The Prisoner health discharge summary cluster combines the three data elements: Person—prisoner health discharge summary indicator, yes/no code N, Person—legal status of prisoner, code N and Establishment (prison)—number of prisoners released, number N[NN] to describe the number and type of prisoners who have a discharge summary on file when they are released from prison.

The Prisoner health discharge summary cluster describes the following information:

 

Detention status Discharge summary indicator Number
Remand(a) Yes N
Remand No N
Sentenced(b) Yes N
Sentenced No N

(a) Remand prisoners are persons who have been placed in custody while awaiting the outcome of a court hearing.

(b) Sentenced prisoners are those persons who have received a term of imprisonment from a court. This includes offenders who have been given an indeterminate sentence or custodial order, for example, forensic patients, or those who have received a life sentence.

Note: The number of prisoners who were released from a prison during the National Prisoner Health Census period does not include transfers to other prisons.
