A bit about us..

Care UK were recently awarded the healthcare contract at HMP Bure and will begin delivering services on 1st April 2019; we are the Health in Justice Market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2019 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

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.

Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.
