Craig Sayers

Clinical Lead for prison healthcare


My name is Craig Sayers, originally from Burnley, I trained at Edinburgh University graduating in 1993. I am 52 years young.

I have worked as a GP in prisons since 2000 and have been the Clinical Lead for Prison Healthcare in NHS Forth Valley since 2011.

I have been the Scottish Representative for the RCGP Secure Environments Group since 2013.

My area of interest is in relation to addictions management within the custodial setting.

I have recently been asked to be the National Lead Clinician/Professional Ambassador for National Prisoner Care Network. I am looking forward to taking up this exciting new challenge and opportunity.

In relation to this poster presentation, we are looking to continue to collate data both during our patients time in prison and following liberation with a view to journal publication in 2022.
