General Practitioner - Devon and Dorset Prison Cluster
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 recognise training and development is key, therefore we have training centres to facilitate for your needs. You will gain insight and training in Mental Health and Substance Misuse.
If you are new to offender health, we will create a suitable induction package to ensure you are equipped for this exciting role.

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.
