The following National Offender Management Service (NOMS) policies relating to post-incident care for all staff, including the Young People’s Estate, are currently extant though not all are published externally for security reasons:
PSI 64/2011 - Management of prisoners at risk of harm to self, to others and from others (Safer Custody)
Any local arrangements (protocols) for implementing these policies would not be published externally or otherwise made available to the Commons Library.
NOMS PSI 08/2010 "Post Incident Care" is currently under review; this review includes the role of Care Teams which are cited in the policy and the revision will make reference to the new Employee Assistance services (since October 2014) and Occupational Health services, which are available to all staff and managers. We anticipate that this review will be completed by the summer.
In addition to the publication of relevant PSIs, NOMS has internally published specific guidance for all staff and managers on the employee assistance services. There have also been a number of national internal intranet articles and guides published recently on managing wellbeing generally and in specific circumstances, directed to all staff.
NOMS has been through a lot of change in recent years. Staff wellbeing is important to NOMS and this year we are focusing on resources to enhance the mental and physical wellbeing of our staff, ensuring they are supported through this change.
