G4S: 'More Oakwood improvements in coming months'

Today we can see a reduction in the amount of drugs entering the establishment, the use of force is reducing and better care, sentence plans and resettlement arrangements for prisoners are being put in place.

We are also working with the Ministry of Justice and the healthcare and education providers, who do not report to us, to address the issues raised in this report.

...As the experience of staff develops, the regime becomes fully embedded and our reporting systems continue to improve, the months ahead will see significant further improvements in performance.

– Jerry Petherick, Managing Director for G4S Custodial and Detention Services
