Dear Manchester Teaching Primary Care Trust,
I have some questions which I would like answered with regards to HMP Manchester. Could you please supply me with the following information:
What is HMP Manchester’s policy for screening people at reception for autism spectrum disorders (ASD)? Throughout, by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) we mean all conditions on the autism spectrum, including Asperger’s syndrome.
How many prisoners were received into HMP Manchester, for each month between January 2009 and June 2011, who were identified with an ASD?
What policies does HMP Manchester have for supporting the needs of prisoners identified with ASD? Please issue us with a copy of any relevant policies.
Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
