About this release

This release by Public Health Scotland (PHS) presents indicators in a dashboard which are summarised versions of publications and reports published by PHS and other organisations. The intention is to create a navigational hub for prison health data in Scotland called the Prison Health Information Dashboard.

The dashboard contains data on drug-related deaths, take home naloxone kits, smoking cessation, drug and alcohol waiting times and alcohol brief interventions. This release also contains additional information regarding prisoner addiction prevalence testing, homelessness, and opiate replacement therapies.

Please note, the previous version of the dashboard (external website) on the Data and Intelligence website.
