The company running healthcare at HMP Parc at the time of Shaun Beasley's death, Primecare - Forensic Medical Services, says it recognises the care provided 'fell below our high standards.' It sends its 'sincerest condolences' to Mr Beasley's family and friends.
We have carefully reviewed what happened to identify what went wrong and recognise that the care provided to Mr Beasley fell below our high standards. As a result we put in place a number of measures to improve safety including better communication systems between healthcare and custody staff, improved recruitment, staffing levels and training, and a focus on better record-keeping. We are deeply sorry that the care that Mr Beasley received was not up to the required standards. Our services have improved greatly since this tragic incident in 2010.
