Are you looking to work within a service that offers and promotes outstanding care to its service users?

If the answer is yes, then we are looking to recruit flexible, enthusiastic individuals to work in our prison healthcare service at HMP Long Lartin.

About the Job

HMP Long Lartin is a Category A and B dispersal prison holding up to 625 sentenced prisoners. There is an 8 bedded inpatient unit and existing on site pharmacy.

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.

Job Requirements

You will be a qualified GP (with GMC and performers list registration) and have a real passion for building on your medical skills in an environment that is ever changing. You’ll have a flexible approach working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service.

If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!

What do our current GP's say?

‘As a full-time salaried GP and Clinical Lead, working for Care UK has provided me with stability, opportunity and resources to be able to do my job well. My work load is manageable and I am well supported by an excellent team who are keen and well-motivated. I am able to get involved in service development and commissioning as well as being supported with study leave for appraisal and professional development’. - Dr Andrew Bowen

About Us

Care UK is 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.

What we can offer you?

As a valued employee of Care UK, we will ensure that we offer you a salary up to £96,900 (pro rata) per annum including pension scheme, indemnity, on-going training and development as well designated study leave days and good quality working conditions.

Our benefits do not stop there…

We also offer 25 days annual leave along with 8 public holidays per year, 2x salary life assurance and discounts through the NHS blue light card scheme and Log Buy.

If you think this role sounds perfect for you, then apply today or for further information, please contact Alex for more information or a full job description.

Please note - offers of employment are subject to Care UK terms and conditions and receipt of satisfactory references, Enhanced DBS Check and Prison Vetting including Counter Terrorism Check.
