The NHS’s Liaison and Diversion services identify people who have mental health problems, learning disabilities, subtance misuse issues or other vulnerabilities when they first come into contact with the criminal justice system as suspects, defendants or offenders. The service screens for all health and social vulnerabilities that may be contributing to increased contact with the criminal justice system.
Screening is typically done in confined and restricted spaces such as a police custody cell meaning that the only current, viable method for capturing information is on paper. However this method has its challenges:
- The use of spreadsheets and paper based processes is not only time consuming but has the potential for error.
- Important referral information lost to follow-up.
However, Totalmobile’s CJLDs solution is a mobile screening solution which integrates with Rio and provides unparalleled flexibility for health staff as they can take their mobile device with them to police custody cells, courts or any other location to carry out the screening process. The solution works offline, removing many of the challenges of working in restricted locations.
