Alison is a firm believer in providing quality, patient-centred care and also in reducing health inequalities within society.

Alison said: “I am humbled and honoured to receive this award in recognition of my work towards improving the healthcare for patients. This award, along with my gratitude, belongs to the entire team, who have worked tirelessly to ensure that we are able to deliver equity of healthcare in line with the wider community offering. My team and I are committed to delivering evidence-based interventions, that not only promotes the physical and mental well-being of prisoners, but that also assists with reducing the risk of re-offending.”


Congratulations on this fantastic achievement, Alison!
