In the morning, the prisoner will meet the Prison Governor or Deputy/Assistant Governor. The Governor will make sure he is aware of his entitlements, obligations and privileges under the Prison Rules. He can discuss any problems or concerns with the Governor, who will do his best to facilitate him. On the first day they will see the Prison Doctor if he/she is on duty.

On the first morning also, he will be seen by the Industrial Manager, and asked if he would like to work in any of the workshops, the kitchen, on the landings, or attend school. He will be informed of what support services are available – psychology service, counselling service, addiction and substance abuse treatment services etc. (The AA visits the prison for meetings twice weekly and the NA comes in regularly. These meetings are held in the Education Unit)
