Visitors to wards

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, our wards are now closed to visitors. We realise that this will be difficult for many people, however it is something we have had to do in order to protect patients, staff and visitors alike. 

We will keep this decision under constant review and as soon as we are able, we will reopen the wards.


Oxleas provides a range of physical and mental health services in seven prisons across Kent.

The establishments are:

  • HMP/ YOI Cookham Wood
  • HMP Rochester
  • HMP East Sutton Park
  • HMP Elmley, HMP Standford Hill and HMP Swaleside (Sheppey Cluster)
  • HMP Maidstone
