The Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) of HMP Bristol has been shocked and saddened by the recent number of deaths in custody at Bristol. In its 2022-23 annual report, the IMB highlights the high levels of self-harm and violence and says that there has been little improvement in areas of concern it has raised previously. In a recent HMIP inspection Bristol was described as one of the most unsafe prisons in Britain and received an urgent notification. Staffing pressures contribute to a vicious cycle of prisoners spending longer hours in their cells, increasing frustration and reducing access to education, healthcare and other services, which does not support effective rehabilitation.
