This information is not held centrally.
The University of Glasgow recently carried out a study, with the preliminary findings presented in The National Prisoner Heath Network 2016 report ‘’Brain Injury and Offending’’. This is available at http://www.nphn.scot.nhs.uk/nphn-brain-injury-and-offending-final-report-publication/
