Wormwood Scrubs continues to provide an ordered, safe and decent regime, while coping with a number of operational challenges.
I am very conscious of the pressures staff face and we remain absolutely committed to tackling and reducing violence at Wormwood Scrubs and across the prison estate.
– Michael Spurr, Chief Executive Officer of the National Offender Management Service
Our more efficient national model for running safe and secure prisons is being introduced at Wormwood Scrubs next month.
This will help maximise opportunities for rehabilitation, with more prisoners engaging in full-time work, while staff will be deployed efficiently so a positive regime is routinely and consistently delivered.
