Increased costs to the council, NHS and police

Wrexham County Borough Council response:

“No detailed research has been carried out however the Ministry of Justice states that there are no specific extra costs for policing. Prisons also have their own medical facilities and only use the NHS in an emergency. Problems associated with Oakwood prison were due to the contract with the healthcare provider and it is unlikely this will happen in Wrexham although it is something that can be raised with the MoJ.”
