Additional Information: Article Type: 2013 Awards for Excellence From: International Journal of Prisoner Health, Volume 10, Issue 1 The following article was selected for this year's Outstanding Paper Award for International Journal of Prisoner Health "Cross examination of clinicians at coroners' inquests following deaths in custody" Nat Wright, Charlotte N.E. Tompkins and Zanib Mohammed Based in the Healthcare Department, HMP Leeds, Leeds, UK Purpose – The purpose of this paper draws upon the international literature to focus on the investigation of prisoner deaths in England and Wales, concentrating on clinician involvement in this process. Design/methodology/approach – This is a viewpoint paper regarding clinician involvement in coroner investigations of prisoner deaths in England and Wales. Findings – Compared to colleagues practising in the community, the authors suggest that there is a higher burden of investigation upon clinicians practicing in secure environments and recommend improved training for prison clinicians regarding expectations of the coroner's inquest and also a system whereby questioning in coroners’ courts is directed through the coroner. Originality/value – This paper provides an updated perspective on the issue of coroner investigations following a death in prison custody, from the position of practising prison clinicians.
