The prevalence of physical and mental health problems is high in prisoners compared with the general population, although health services are closing the gaps. These disparities and the unique setting make for a potent environment for research into offender health. However, conducting research in prison does present difficulties. This paper presents an 'insider's' view of the process, from setting up a qualitative research project through to obtaining relevant approvals and support in this paradoxical world of regulatory bodies.
