We developed the Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (CHAT). Prior to CHAT there was no standardised approach to assessing the health needs of young people within the secure estate, with the introduction of the CHAT all young people on admission to the secure estate now have a CHAT assessment completed within 10 days of admission.  If the young people move around the secure estate, their health assessment travels with them, meaning that assessments are not repeated. The CHAT has now been implemented within all Young Offender Institutions, Secure Training Centres and Secure Children's Homes in England.
