Have you ever thought about working within the prison environment?

Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding role with career development?

Then look no further…

Care UK was recently awarded the healthcare contract at the prisons in the South West, including HMP YOI Exeter, HMP Channings Wood and HMP Dartmoor. We are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.

To ensure the continued quality of care, we’re looking for a GP to support us and the existing team in this new venture.

We also offer company benefits and schemes including 2-5% company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata) plus 8 public bank holidays, staff well-being, access to bank hours, cycle to work scheme.

Skills & Experience

As a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, the General Practitioner will provide clinical assessment and diagnosis to patient’s requirements and make timely decisions regarding future management. You will also provide a highly specialist resource to other healthcare staff, patients and carers and have active involvement in clinical governance/effectiveness activities.

It doesn’t end there; you will have a chance to become actively involved in audit, teaching and training (management of substance misuse and/or blood borne viruses) as well as helping us to adapt the service to the ever-changing needs of the patients.
