The Health and Justice Information Service
The Health and Justice Information Services (HJIS) is an IT system for the English Health and Justice Service. Patients may be in the justice system in England in the following places:
Young Offender Institutes
Immigration Removal Centres
Secure Training Centres
Secure Children's Homes
Benefits of the new HJIS contract are:
patient records can be transferred between health and Justice organisations
records can be passed back to community NHS services when leaving the Justice system
patients can register with a Justice healthcare team as their registered GP services for continuity of care
access to NHS Spine services such as PDS, e-RS, EPS etc
The ownership of the HJIS programme lies with NHS England.
NHS Digital's role has primarily been the procurement of a replacement solution following the expiry of the original contract and, in future, will provide solution assurance services for each release.
The NEL Commissioning Support Unit (NEL CSU) is responsible for delivery of the programme, including implementation of new system functionality.
To find out more information about the programme or to sign up for the Health and Justice bulletin, you can contact NEL CSU by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
