Dear Highland NHS Board,

I am requesting some statistics regarding people on pharmacological medications in HMP Inverness, from 2013-2017. I'm doing this under the freedom of information act.

The information I am after is:

1) The number of people on pharmacological medications (antidepressants, anti-psychotics etc.) in HMP Inverness.

2) The number of people per age, gender, ethnicity and census locality on pharmacological medications in HMP Inverness.

3) The number of specialised psychiatric doctors, clinicians and therapists employed and working in your prisons in each year stated.

4) The aftercare received by exiting prisoners in relation to their mental health.

I hope this is easy enough to digest and you are able to provide me with the needed information. I would like this information in .xls form.

Please make me aware if anything needs clarifying.

Yours faithfully,
Sean Finnan

Dear MCINALLY, Anna (NHS HIGHLAND),

Many thanks for taking the time to respond to my request. In regard to my first request on the number of people on pharmacological medications (antidepressants, anti-psychotics etc.) in HMP Inverness, would it be possible to narrow down the criteria to just refer to individuals prescribed medication for mental health reasons per the years 2013-2017 in the prison.

Yours sincerely,

Sean Finnan
