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. These include the following:

Devon Cluster - 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.

Key Responsibilities

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.

In this environment we appreciate flexibility around working hours. We offer a competitive annual salary plus payment of MDU/MPS subscription and CPD days (pro-rata for part-time). Furthermore should you wish there are plenty of opportunities for extra shifts and overtime.

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.

Qualifications

MBChB or MBBS qualified, you’ll be registered with the GMC and on a PCT Medical Performers List. RCGP1 part 1 is desirable.

Additional Information

This part-time role will be working 8 sessions per week although we will take other part time applications. The salary for this role is £95,000 pro-rata.

Please note that this role is subject to Care UK Terms & Conditions and offers of employment are subject to satisfactory receipt of references, enhanced DBS check and prison vetting.
