Aggregate report on Short scrutiny visits by HM Chief Inspector of Prisons : 21 April-7 July 2020

This report summarises the findings of 35 short scrutiny visits (SSVs) undertaken by HMI Prisons during the spring and summer of 2020. In response to the risks presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we suspended our planned inspection programme and quickly developed and implemented the new SSV methodology. This ensured that we could fulfil our statutory duty to report on treatment and conditions in prisons and other places of detention as safely as possible and without adding unreasonable burdens to establishments dealing with unprecedented challenges. During this period, we visited adult male prisons, women’s prisons and young offender institutions. We also visited immigration removal centres (IRCs), which we report on in the final section of this report.
