The Assessment, Care in Custody and Teamwork (ACCT) process is used to provide multi-disciplinary case management for prisoners assessed as being at risk of self-harm or suicide.
Self-inflicted deaths1 where prisoners were not on an open ACCT2, England and Wales, 2010 to 2015
Self-inflicted deaths where prisoners were not on an open ACCT
If a prisoner was not subject to the ACCT (Assessment Care in Custody and Teamwork) process at the time of the incident that resulted in death then the prisoner would be described as not being on an open ACCT.
Due to the number of deaths that remain unclassified (awaiting further information) in recent year(s), considerable caution should be used when comparing with earlier periods.
