Abstract

This handbook describes the CQC's approach to regulating and inspecting health and social care in prisons and young offender institutions (YOIs) (prisons for young people aged 15-21), and health care in immigration removal centres (IRCs) (holding centres for detainees awaiting decisions on their residency status or deportation following an unsuccessful application).
