A new £1m healthcare suite has been opened at Lewes Prison designed to improve care for inmates.
Newly windows are designed to reduce suicides at the prison
The money was used to create three consulting rooms and a 19-bed patient unit for mental health assessment and to treat physically ill prisoners.
New windows have been designed to replace the Victorian barred windows, aimed at cutting the risk of suicide.
The refurbishment, which also includes a pharmacy and dental surgery, was funded by the Prison Service.
Five of the in-patient beds have been created with specially moulded furniture so suicide-risk patients can be placed in a safer environment.
The Sussex Downs and Weald Primary Care Trust is working with Lewes Prisons to manage transfers from the jail and to improve the care and treatment of inmates.
The PCT said the refurbishment offers the opportunity to improve facilities for the prisoners and provides a better environment for healthcare staff.
