PPO/HMPPS Impact Symposium: a response from HMPPS in Wales

To provide a response to the question: “Are PPO recommendations being properly implemented?”, we welcomed Prison Group Director for HMPPS in Wales, Kenny Brown, along with Group Safety Lead Sophie Lozano, to talk about the positive changes made by HMPPS in Wales to its process of accepting and implementing PPO recommendations, following a particularly critical report by the Chief Inspector of Prisons at HMP Swansea in 2017.

Kenny and Sophie were keen to stress that their process is not perfect and may not work for all, but they did examine the value of a comprehensive process of systems assurance, dialogue with the PPO and regular oversight of implementation at Group and Executive Director level.
