Prison and Youth Detention Health Services

Prison and Youth Detention Health Services (PYDHS) is the first point of contact for people in custody requiring immediate health care. Our teams are based in a health clinic setting within each prison and youth detention facility in the West Moreton region.

These include the following:

  • Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre
  • Borallon Training and Correctional Centre
  • Brisbane Correctional Centre
  • Brisbane Women’s Correctional Centre
    including Helana Jones Centre
  • Brisbane Youth Detention Centre
  • Southern Queensland Correctional Centre
  • West Moreton Youth Detention Centre
  • Wolston Correctional Centre

Our health care services include primary health, such as emergency response, and primary mental health care. This is provided in a safe and structured environment within the prison. PYDHS also provides some health care support to the Helana Jones Centre in Albion.
