Over the last 10 years the number of prisoners in England and Wales aged 75 and over has risen each year. The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) is working hard to ensure that prisons are equipped to meet the needs of this group, including through the commissioning of health and social care services.
The requested information is provided in the following table.
|Prison population aged 75 years and over as at 31 March in year shown, England and Wales|
|Male category B||9||16|
|Male category C||83||187|
|Male closed YOI1||<5||<5|
